Add HLS format support to MPD

Post by tcmods »


I get a lot of requests from UK users of Moode Audio Player to get BBC radio 320K HLS streams working but it appears that the format is not yet supported in 0.19.1x MPD. It is not listed under [ffmpeg] in MPD -V

I see though that avconv supports it.

root@rp3:~# avconv -formats | grep hls
avconv version 11.4-6:11.4-1~deb8u1+rpi1, Copyright (c) 2000-2014 the Libav developers
built on Jun 16 2015 05:32:34 with gcc 4.9.2 (Raspbian 4.9.2-10)
E hls Apple HTTP Live Streaming
D hls,applehttp Apple HTTP Live Streaming

Since MPD use libav, can HLS format be added to MPD for decoding the BBC streams?
