HLSParserJ

Introduction

hlsparserj is a Java library for parsing HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) playlist files. It is compliant with Version 12 of the Pantos spec:

http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-pantos-http-live-streaming-12

Examples

Parse a Master Playlist from an HTTP Endpoint

package com.comcast.viper.hlsparserj;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.MalformedURLException;
import java.net.URL;
import java.text.MessageFormat;

import com.comcast.viper.hlsparserj.tags.master.StreamInf;

public class Test {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws MalformedURLException, IOException {

        IPlaylist playlist = PlaylistFactory.parsePlaylist(PlaylistVersion.TWELVE, new URL("http://localhost/index.m3u8"));

        if (playlist.isMasterPlaylist()) {

            MasterPlaylist mp = (MasterPlaylist) playlist;
            for(StreamInf stream : mp.getVariantStreams()) {
                System.out.println(MessageFormat.format(
                    "Program ID: [{0}]; Bandwidth: [{1}]; Codecs: [{2}]; Resolution: [{3}]; URI: [{4}];",
                        new Object[] {
                            stream.getProgramId(),
                            String.valueOf(stream.getBandwidth()),
                            stream.getCodecs(),
                            stream.getResolution(),
                            stream.getURI()
                        }
                ));
            }
        }
    }
}

Find the Variant Playlist from the Master Playlist with the Highest Bitrate:

    // Get the playlist, but make sure it's a master playlist returned
    Playlist genericPlaylist = PlaylistFactory.parsePlaylist(PlaylistVersion.TWELVE, is);
    if (!genericPlaylist.isMasterPlaylist()) {
	    throw new Exception("Expected a master playlist but got a media playlist");
    }
    MasterPlaylist playlist = (MasterPlaylist)genericPlaylist;

    URL topBitrateVariant = null;
    int highestBitrate = Integer.MIN_VALUE;
    for (StreamInf variant : playlist.getVariantStreams()) {
    	if (variant.getBandwidth() > highestBitrate) {
    		topBitrateVariant = new URL(variant.getURI());
    	}
    }

Developer Notes

How to Add New/Custom Tags

  1. Extend the abstract Tag class and create a new class for your tag in com.comcast.viper.hlsparserj.tags.
  • Add getter methods for the attributes of your tag. See the Media object for an example.
  • Unnamed attributes (e.g. EXT-X-VERSION:4) are referred to as UNNAMEDATTR[num]. See the Version object for an example.
  1. Add a new name for your tag to com.viper.hlsparserj.tags.TagNames
  • Also add the static block to register this new tag with the TagFactory
  1. Create a new playlist version in com.viper.hlsparserj.PlaylistVersion
  • Numeric version identifiers should be reserved for Pantos spec-compliant implementation
  • Create a new package, similar to the v12 package
  • Extend either MasterPlaylist or MediaPlaylist, depending on where your tag lives
  • Add a getter method to this extension. See the top level MasterPlaylist class for examples
