July news

July was very intense in terms of new features.

Audio streaming


Icecast/SHOUTcast transmuxing was entirely re-worked and it now allows processing audio streams via same engine as used for RTMP, RTSP and MPEG-TS. The output protocols are the same plus HLS and MPEG-DASH.
It also allows using our Live Transcoder for audio transformation.
Read this article to see how you can now setup Icecast transmuxing.
Please upgrade or install latest Nimble Streamer and use new Icecast management interface in live pull settings in order to use all new benefits.

Live Transcoder 


Live Transcoder also allows manipulating audio channels to split stereo signal into 2 separate streams. Read this article for details.

Speaking of Live Transcoder, we've added Linux support for Intel QuickSync. So if you have Intel-powered hardware, you should check this capability.

CDNs support


We've added support for RTMP publishing into most popular live CDNs - Akamai and Limelight.
They have special requirements for RTMP authentication and we have them covered now.
Read more about Limelight RTMP setup and Akamai RTMP setup.

Codecs support in transmuxing


We've added a few more codecs into our transmuxing engine.


All new codecs will be used in pass-through mode, with no changes to the content

You can see full list of supported codecs here. There are plenty of them there.

Also, we've update MP4 support to handle EditListBox (elst) primitive for VOD transmuxing.

Paywall update


Our customers we asking for HTTP Referer header support in our paywall feature set. So we've added Referer groups into WMSAuth engine. They can be used in Deny lists.

Mobile broadcasting SDK


Our SDK for iOS was updated with live rotation capabilities that work the same way as in Android.
You can install Larix Broadcaster from AppStore to try it out and get mobile SDK on our website.


WMSPanel API


WMSPanel control API was updated with HTTP origin alias methods.
We've also updated the API reference page with new UI for your convenience. It's now easier to find any functionality or method.



The last but not the least update: check the State of Streaming Protocols for July 2016.
