HTTP Live Streaming JavaScript player

Posted on:

I've created Apple HTTP Live Streaming JavaScript player created by performing realtime conversion of MPEG-TS video chunks to MPEG-4 in parallel thread using Web Worker and playing them one by one in main thread.

How does it work?

Conversion is done using jBinary library with programmatically described data structures according to ISO 13818-1, ISO-14496-2, ISO-14496-12 and ITU-T H.222.0 specifications.

Where does it work?

Works best in Chrome (stable branch), having more noticable lags when switching videos but still working in latest Firefox versions and IE10+.


Please note that demo uses 3rd-party HLS demo source and service for proxying it with needed Cross-Origin-Request headers for browsers to allow chunk downloading, so it may be unstable.

Where I can see that?

Check out for live demo.
