As of VIMP 4.2.5 you can also play your videos via HLS without streaming server (Native HLS). Proceed as follows:
For the playout of videos via HLS existing media have to be re-transcoded.
Newly uploaded videos are automatically transcoded into the appropriate formats by activating HLS support in the transcoding settings (see above).
Videos that have not (yet) been re-transcoded will continue to be played out using the conventional method.
Important: Please note that activating native HLS support increases the storage space per medium by about 30%.
