Bandwidth Measurement with Inaris HLS Player
For media streaming the available IP bandwidth is important to ensure a good quality of the video/audio playback, especially when WiFi is used. We extended our Inaris HLS Media Player to run in a bandwidth measurement mode. In this mode the HLS player downloads the media segments with the maximum possible speed and measures the available bandwidth.
This data can be used by the application during a first install to check the available bandwidth, and warn the user if it is too low. Bandwidth measurement can also be started explicitly by the user at any time to check the connection speed in case of playback problems.
