Hi - will this support framework support streaming via IIS Media Services to HTML5 HLS-supporting browsers and devices?

IIS Media Services currently supports streaming to iOS devices using a free tool that we call the transform manager (it re-packages the file format for HLS). We aim to support as many delivery profiles as possible within the Player Framework. As you probably know, there isn't a standard for adaptive streaming delivery to HTML5 yet but we are actively engaged in the discussions around MPEG DASH. Apple's HLS and it's support in Safari is not standardized but it's something we can certainly try to support. Our focus is on our delivery platform so meeting as many client profiles as possible is a goal for us.
