Upload order for HLS

In accordance with the HLS recommendation, encoders must upload all required files for a specific bit rate and segment before proceeding to the next segment. The encoder should only move to the next segment after the previous segment has been successfully uploaded or after the segment duration time has elapsed.

Upload the files and segments for HLS in this order:

  1. Upload .ts.
  2. Upload key file, optional.
  3. Upload .m3u8.
Important: If there is a problem with either Step 1 or 2, retry them. Do not proceed to Step 3 until Step 1 succeeds.
