Hi,
I'm working on an app that has to play videos in one of these formats:
  1. HDS
    (sample link: http://keshethdzeri-f.akamaihd.net/z/VOD/3RD_PARTY/TESTS_PACK/S00/shay_test/shay_test_,500,850,1200,2000,.mp4.csmil/manifest.f4m)
  2. HLS
    (sample link: http://keshethdios-i.akamaihd.net/i/VOD/3RD_PARTY/TESTS_PACK/S00/shay_test/shay_test_,64,256,500,850,1200,2000,.mp4.csmil/master.m3u8)
The video player of the Player Framework fails to play both links.
  1. Does this mean they're not supported?
  2. Is there any way I can play them (preferably without using 3rd parties)
  3. In case those formats cannot be supported, what are my other options? should I ask my client to provide a "Smooth Streaming" link? Is there even such a thing? should I ask for a progressive download link?
I'm confused, please help :)
