How to get the M3U8 link of a linear channel
Now you can ingest the 24/7 live stream in a third-party player for your website, your apps (mobile/Smart TV/set-top-box) or OTT platforms like Roku, Apple TV, etc.
This feature is possible via the generation of an HLS .m3u8 media link for linear channels. To get the .m3u8 link, please create a linear channel with the option "I want the .m3u8 link of this channel to ingest in a 3rd party video player or platform" selected.
Please note that all videos added to these channels must be:
- Videos uploaded to our cloud (through our upload page).
- Or .m3u8 VOD links (from your own video hosting/CDN).
This feature is available from the Premium plan. You can try the live feed in a third-party player during one minute from any plan and once you upgrade to Premium, you will get full access.
Note that, at the moment, if you stream live to a channel the live is not sent to the M3U8 output. It will be available in future releases.
