WebVTT Subtitle Decoder Integrated with Inaris HLS Player
With HLS based OTT streaming DVB or Teletext subtitle formats used by broadcast services are no longer supported. Instead, HLS uses WebVTT for subtitles. We integrated the WebVTT subtitle decoder used by ExoPlayer with our Inaris HLS Player.
Our HLS Player is receiving the WebVTT files and passes them to the subtitle decoder running in a different process. With this approach, we achieve the combination of our secure and highly efficient HLS Player with an available WebVTT decoder used by Android TV.
