Adaptive Bitrate Streaming (ABR)

In order to utilize the Adaptive Bitrate Streaming (ABR) functionality, it is essential to enable and customize the transcoding setting. In the instance of Storm Streaming Cloud, users have the ability to choose this option during stream creation (provided their subscription permits it). For Storm Streaming Server, a commercial license is required, along with the setup of Transcoding within the respective application. For more in-depth instructions, please refer to our comprehensive guide on Transcoding & Adaptive Bitrate Streaming (ABR) Features.

Differences between VideoJS & Storm Library/Player

VideoJS and our dedicated Storm Library/Player work in different ways. VideoJS will not react to stream state changes (published, unpublished). It also will not update its data on the fly.
