Until JWPlayer decides to use HTML5’s built in closed caption support instead of overlaying text across the video this workaround will need to be included for your website to support closed captions on iOS devices when playing back video in fullscreen. Luckily the fix is very simple and non-obtrusive.
Adobe made some changes to AMS in version 5.0.8. The included Apache server got upgraded to 2.4, and with that came a change to the live packaging of streams. Now you can inject ID3 data into HDS and HLS streams! This article walks through how to.
We’re looking for two junior level technologists to join our small team here in Capitol Hill, Denver, CO and work with us on exciting and cutting edge projects. These two positions are on-site at our RealEyes office and full time.
A couple of weeks ago I was asked to write an Auth Token Generator using AS3 for use in Adobe Flash Player. This script accepts a number of input parameters and outputs a single token url.

In this week’s post, we’ll be continuing on with a more in depth look at the alternate audio track options available in Playlist-based Video Formats (HLS – HTTP Live Streaming, HDS – HTTP Dynamic Streaming, MPEG-DASH – Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP), with a focus on HLS – the format created by Apple.
Since iOS 8 went live on the 17th and I updated a few of my devices over the weekend, I decided to do some quick testing of web video playback. I wanted to see if there were any little, undocumented changes that would affect our custom, cross-platform video player, or our general approach to working with HTML video – like the changes to exiting fullscreen video that came in the update from iOS 6 -> iOS 7.
As streaming video continues to mature and become a more widely used medium for delivering major events, it is becoming more important to not only deliver a clear, reliable video, but to begin augmenting it with some of the extra possibilities it affords. One of those extras is the possibility of including alternate audio tracks that can be selected during playback. These can be used to offer video in multiple languages, provide a commentary track, and in many other creative ways.
Sublime Text offers many, many options for navigating within your project’s code or searching within either a single file, or the entire codebase of the project. The “Find” Menu offers over a dozen different options for Find and Replace, and depending on which you choose, there are 3 separate “Find” Dialog Panels available.
In this post, I’m going to show a few quick, introductory tips for using the “Find in Files…” Panel. Searching from this Panel will allow you to search across all files in your project, or (as we’ll cover in the second section) select a sub-set of files for a quicker search with more relevant results.
