HLS supports Fragmented MP4 and becomes MPEG-DASH compatible!

What does that mean for NimbleStreamer

We saw it was announced by Apple recently and it sounds like a good news.

We plan adding support for fMP4 in HLS, but since this is not yet present in Apple products, there's no need to hurry up with that.

Anyway, thanks for the heads-up.

Hi, when can Nimble support HLS fMP4 since it is officially supported in iOS 11 and iOS 11 is out for some time now?

We're working on it right now, it's coming out soon. Follow our news in blog and social media to see when it's available.

Hi Alex, it is for live stream only, we need for VOD MP4, can you tell us when fmp4 for VOD MP4 is ready?

Alex Pokotilo 2017-11-09 06:35:36 UTC

I cannot provide any ETA but I've +1 for this feature in our wish list.
Thanks for your feedback!

Hi Alex, appreciate your reply! It should be a +5 as many of us needs this feature for VOD to save bandwidth for streaming to all iphones with iOS11!

Let us have the good news soon!

Hi, it has been 3 months and fMP4 for VOD MP4 is still not ready? Why? fMP4 has been in iOS for quite some time now and VOD Mp4 is so important.

Alex Pokotilo 2018-01-24 07:21:22 UTC

you are absolutely right and nothing excuse us for this delay but we don't have this support yet unfortunately. We got a lot of work with fmp4 for live content and the rest of the features so we just haven't had enough time to implement this. Thanks for patience - we will implement it for sure.

Big 2018-01-24 07:44:36 UTC

Hi, Please implement it as we are constantly waiting for it for use in production! thanks!
