hls-vodis a server application lets you stream your whole video collection on-demand, regardless of format, to your iOS devices, playable from Safari, working with AirPlay as well. It does this by invoking ffmpeg/VLC on the fly through the command line, and presenting a web based GUI for playback.
Version 1.0 is out with simpler usage 🎉
npm i -g hls-vod
hls-vod --root-path /path/to/my/videos
hls-vod --transcoder-path /path/to/ffmpeg --root-path /path/to/my/videos
hls-vod --transcoder-type vlc --root-path /path/to/my/videos
hls-vod --transcoder-type vlc --transcoder-path /usr/bin/vlc --root-path /path/to/my/videos
hls-vodsupports both VLC and ffmpeg as streaming backend. ffmpeg gives the best performance and best format/codec support, in my experience. Thumbs and audio is not implemented for VLC.
