Editing an HDS-based Message in the Clip Editor

How to

  1. Switch to List view and inspect the recorded clip for Adobe HDS messages. For live streams, the user should look for any files with the extension .bootstrap.The selected message is opened in the sub-pane with the tab title Selected: <MessageName> active.
  2. Create a JavaScript program that will inspect the XML in the .bootstrap files. These files are an XML representation of the Adobe Bootstrap Info Box.The JavaScript program must then perform the following, which is taken from the Adobe HDS documentation:

    Using the bootstrap information (run tables) contained in the file, the client translates the desired timecode to a segment number/fragment number pair. The client then constructs a URL based on this number pair, which requests a specific fragment from a specific F4F file.

  3. Play the clip in a test composition.

What you should see

When you play a test composition containing HDS messages, CloudTest will automatically encode it before sending the request.

Similarly, message responses are decoded before display in results. The decoded response will be displayed in results (such as in the Result Details widget).
