ActionScript Bitrate Selection API
The Bitrate Selection API allows developers to programmatically obtain current buffer size, as well as get and set bitrates. In order to select a bitrate, we offer two different workflows:
- select a bitrate based on its quality (auto, low, medium, or high). For example, if you set the bitrate quality to high, the player will decide which is the highest available encoding.
- select a bitrate based on its kbps number (sum of both audio and video encodings). For example, consider a video with the following available bitrates: [600 kbps, 1000 kbps, 3000 kbps, 4000 kbps]. You can set the bitrate quality to be any of those values.
ActionScript Bitrate Selection FunctionsThe following table lists and describes the bitrate selection functions/methods.
|Bitrate Selection Function Name||Description|
|bufferLength()||Returns the current size of the buffer in seconds, when buffer length is supported, or 0 otherwise.|
|bitrateQualitiesAvailable()||Returns an array of strings.|
|bitratesAvailable||Returns an array with the total number of bitrates, in kbps, or an empty array when the number of encodings is not available.|
|targetBitrateQuality(quality)||Set the target bitrate quality.|
|targetBitrateQuality()||Get the target bitrate quality. One of auto, low, medium or high.|
|targetBitrate(bitrate)||Set the target bitrate, in kbps.|
