  • Mix VOD2Live channel with a "real" live HLS stream
  • Develop adapters to plugin with custom scheduling endpoints

System Requirements

Supported Node.js Versions

Version Supported

Follow this tutorial to get started building your own FAST channel engine.


Upgrading from 3.3.x to >= 3.4.x

A breaking change was introduced in v3.4.0 when Typescript types were introduced. The library no longer exports a default. This means that you need to change const ChannelEngine = require('eyevinn-channel-engine') to const { ChannelEngine } = require('eyevinn-channel-engine');
