Continuous HLS Monitoring and Validation
The goal of HLSAnalyzer.com is to offer 24x7 online monitoring and validation of HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) streams with unparalleled quality and flexibility. Built as a cloud-based solution from the ground up, we have a vision of offering monitoring solutions for small and large-scale applications, at an affordable cost and with no long-term commitments. You may purchase a subscription to enable additional services such as continuous 24x7 stream and SCTE-35 monitoring, receiving outage alerts, and accessing segment delivery logs. Our software performs over 25 HLS conformance tests, making us one of the leading online HLS validation tools available to the HLS streaming community.
SCTE-35 Outage Alerts and Historical Reports
Ad markers are a well-known concept in the digital broadcasting industry. These markers are generally inserted at the origin and subsequently used by third-party services that offer dynamic ad insertion. The HTTP Live Streaming specification facilitates dynamic advertising insertion by applying SCTE-35 markers. HLSAnalyzer.com can track SCTE-35 markers in HLS playlists and provide outage alerts when ad markers are no longer present. It also measures the advertisement segments' actual duration and compiles hourly and daily reports for verification purposes. The SCTE-35 logging capabilities can help identify problems at multiple points in the content-delivery ecosystem and serve as confirmation for Free Ad-Supported Television (FAST) streaming services and provide historical reports for the previous 90 days.
HLSAnalyzer provides historical logs for alert events and SCTE-35 cues in media playlists. Logs can be requested as a post-processed summary of event data or as the raw individual events recorded by the analyzer. Historical logs will be available for 90 days. You can refer to our documentation section for more details on the different types of logs available in the system.
Flexible and Stable API
HLSAnalyzer.com provides a rich API for accessing all of its HLS monitoring functions. Our browser-based offering utilizes the same underlying API calls, which helps to ensure a consistent experience for our API users.
