Software News   Software News : HTTP Streamer plugin for Hollywood released
   posted by softwarefailure on 27-Sep-2015 10:20:22 (856 reads)
Airsoft Softwair - the hardest work men in code business - are proud to present a brand-new plugin for Hollywood: The HTTP Streamer. This plugin allows Hollywood scripts to open files stored on HTTP servers as if they were local files. Furthermore, the plugin also supports streaming of audio and video files via HTTP if the AVCodec plugin is installed. This finally makes it possible to do video and audio streaming with Hollywood which opens up a whole new range of possibilities for developers! Once this plugin has been activated, all Hollywood functions that deal with files will "automagically" be able to open files from HTTP sources as if they were stored on a local drive. It just doesn't get any more convenient!


The HTTP Streamer uses a sophisticated multi-threaded design for highly efficient HTTP streaming. Each HTTP connection is managed by a dedicated thread for optimal performance. This means that even when dealing with slower connections, Hollywood itself will never become sluggish or anything as all HTTP I/O runs on dedicated threads.

The HTTP Streamer is the second plugin to bear the Powered by Hollywood 6.0 seal of quality as it utilizes the new file adapter plugin interface and the streaming APIs introduced with Hollywood 6.0. The plugin will not work with older versions of Hollywood. That's why we here at Airsoft Softwair say: Life starts at 6.0. The HTTP Streamer is available free of charge and can be downloaded from the official Hollywood portal Versions for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, AROS (i386), Windows, Mac OS X (PowerPC and i386), Linux (PowerPC, i386, ARM) and Android are provided.

Please note that video and audio streaming requires at least version 1.3 of the AVCodec plugin.

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business.

That is really impressive - many, many thanks for continuing to make Hollywood ever more capable.

Cheers,
