Details about video delivery formats supported by Gumlet
We support following video formats. You can deliver your video with any of them.
HTTP Live Streaming (also known as HLS) is an HTTP-based adaptive bitrate streaming communications protocol developed by Apple Inc. Support for the protocol is widespread in media players, web browsers, mobile devices, and streaming media servers. Gumlet also recommends using this format for seamless video delivery and playback.
HTTP Live Streaming provides ways for video players to adapt to unpredictable network conditions changes without causing user-visible playback stalling. For example, on an unreliable wireless network, HLS allows the player to use a lower quality video, thus reducing bandwidth usage.
Gumlet supports any modern video player capable of playing the HLS streaming format: most web players, iOS, and Android devices.
