The check over is performed via distributed network of checkpoints, each checkpoint is a server powered by Nimble Streamer instance.
HLS, RTMP, Smooth, HDS, DASH, RTSP, Shoutcast and Icecast protocols are supported including SSL/TLS for RTMP, RTSP and HLS.

Enter the stream URL to start the availability check over. For HTTP protocols like HLS you should specify the URL of the playlist or manifest.

E.g: http://video.wmspanel.com/local/raw/nimble.mp4/playlist.m3u8

The results will appear below.

To improve HTTP streaming robustness and scalability, you can use Nimble Streamer as your re-streaming edge as well as live streaming origin server.
