Producing HLS and MPEG-DASH from MPEG2TS

Nimble Streamer transmuxes incoming MPEG2-TS into HLS and DASH streams.


Nimble Streamer has DVR feature set which allows recording of any MPEG-TS live streams for further playback via HLS and MPEG-DASH.

MPEG2TS delivery

Nimble Streamer allows delivering existing MPEG2TS by both existing transport methods.

  • Take MPEG2TS via both UDP and HTTP.
  • UDP buffer setup is available.
  • Create HTTP MPEG2TS outgoing stream with its respective URL.
  • Set up via same scenario as other transmuxing.
  • Transmux up to 256 RTMP, RTSP and MPEG2-TS streams into single multi-program MPEG2-TS UDP stream.
  • Producr of single-program outgoing MPEG-TS UDP stream.
  • Both unicast and multicast output delivery methods are supported.

MPEG2TS playback

Nimble Streamer allows playing live streams via HTTP MPEG2TS.
You can set it up using this scenario along with other output protocols.

Re-package between live protocols.

Same transmuxing engine allows re-packaging MPEG-TS content from and into the following protocols.

Hot swap

Hot swap capabilities allow switching between source origin and substitute streams with no glitches or artifacts:

H.265/HEVC support

Nimble has HEVC support for MPEG-TS as output. As a source, you can use RTSP, SRT, UDT, and MPEG-TS over UDP and TCP besides H.264.


Stream aliases are available for making flexible security settings and statistics.
