Hello everyone, recently I've read ( that Matthew Kaufman has developed an AS3 library which adds support for Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) to OSMF ( it's an open source framework to develop flash based media-player) and released it under the MPL open-source license.

HLS (wich is a proposed RFC open standard) is the required protocol to deliver VOD or live stream to Apple devices and it's also supported on Android; having it supported in a flash based media-player can make you reach both desktop and mobile users using just HLS, without the need to offer different distribution method.
Less complexity for content distributor and lower distribution costs!

What about integrating HLS in Kaltura? Note that it's only required to support HLS as a "video source" (in the video-player and maybe the video-editor) because tools to generate valid "HLS stream" already exists and sholdn't be reinvented!
