Vid.ly supports Apple’s HLS adaptive bitrate technology. When an iOS enabled device accesses your Vid.ly, we will deliver video using Apple’s HLS format. HLS is an adaptive bitrate delivery technology that segments your video into 10s increments and multiple bitrates (300k, 600k, 1200k, etc.). HLS also updates your video to include a 64k Dolby HE AAC audio stream. When delivered to an iOS device, HLS conducts bandwidth detection and selects the ideal bitrate for delivery over a variety of bandwidth levels common to cellular, 3G/4G, and WiFi networks. Vid.ly prepares your video content in two different HLS resolutions to support both the iPhone and iPad.
