Type Definitions

AbrConfiguration

Type:
  • {enabled: boolean, useNetworkInformation: boolean, defaultBandwidthEstimate: number, restrictions: shaka.extern.Restrictions, switchInterval: number, bandwidthUpgradeTarget: number, bandwidthDowngradeTarget: number, advanced: shaka.extern.AdvancedAbrConfiguration, restrictToElementSize: boolean, restrictToScreenSize: boolean, ignoreDevicePixelRatio: boolean, clearBufferSwitch: boolean, safeMarginSwitch: number, cacheLoadThreshold: number}
Properties:
Name Type Description
enabled boolean If true, enable adaptation by the current AbrManager. Defaults to true.
useNetworkInformation boolean If true, use the Network Information API in the current AbrManager, if it is available in the browser environment. If the Network Information API is used, Shaka Player will ignore the defaultBandwidthEstimate config. Defaults to true.
defaultBandwidthEstimate number The default bandwidth estimate to use if there is not enough data, in bit/sec. Only used if useNetworkInformation is false, or if the Network Information API is not available.
restrictions shaka.extern.Restrictions The restrictions to apply to ABR decisions. These are "soft" restrictions. Any track that fails to meet these restrictions will not be selected automatically, but will still appear in the track list and can still be selected via selectVariantTrack(). If no tracks meet these restrictions, AbrManager should not fail, but choose a low-res or low-bandwidth variant instead. It is the responsibility of AbrManager implementations to follow these rules and implement this behavior.
switchInterval number The minimum amount of time that must pass between switches, in seconds. This keeps us from changing too often and annoying the user.
bandwidthUpgradeTarget number The fraction of the estimated bandwidth which we should try to use when upgrading.
bandwidthDowngradeTarget number The largest fraction of the estimated bandwidth we should use. We should downgrade to avoid this.
advanced shaka.extern.AdvancedAbrConfiguration Advanced ABR configuration
restrictToElementSize boolean If true, restrict the quality to media element size. Note: The use of ResizeObserver is required for it to work properly. If true without ResizeObserver, it behaves as false. Defaults false.
restrictToScreenSize boolean If true, restrict the quality to screen size. Defaults false.
ignoreDevicePixelRatio boolean If true,device pixel ratio is ignored when restricting the quality to media element size or screen size. Defaults false.
clearBufferSwitch boolean If true, the buffer will be cleared during the switch. The default automatic behavior is false to have a smoother transition. On some device it's better to clear buffer. Defaults false.
safeMarginSwitch number Optional amount of buffer (in seconds) to retain when clearing the buffer during the automatic switch. Useful for switching variant quickly without causing a buffering event. Defaults to 0 if not provided. Ignored if clearBuffer is false. Can cause hiccups on some browsers if chosen too small, e.g. The amount of two segments is a fair minimum to consider as safeMargin value.
cacheLoadThreshold number Indicates the value in milliseconds from which a request is not considered cached. Defaults to 20.

AdCuePoint

Contains the times of a range of an Ad.
Type:
  • {start: number, end: ?number}

AdsConfiguration

Ads configuration.
Type:
  • {customPlayheadTracker: boolean, skipPlayDetection: boolean, supportsMultipleMediaElements: boolean}
Properties:
Name Type Description
customPlayheadTracker boolean If this is true, we create a custom playhead tracker for Client Side. This is useful because it allows you to implement the use of IMA on platforms that do not support multiple video elements. Defaults to false except on Tizen, WebOS, Chromecast, Hisense, PlayStation 4, PlayStation5, Xbox whose default value is true.
skipPlayDetection boolean If this is true, we will load Client Side ads without waiting for a play event. Defaults to false except on Tizen, WebOS, Chromecast, Hisense, PlayStation 4, PlayStation5, Xbox whose default value is true.
supportsMultipleMediaElements boolean If this is true, the browser supports multiple media elements. Defaults to true except on Tizen, WebOS, Chromecast, Hisense, PlayStation 4, PlayStation5, Xbox whose default value is false.

AdvancedAbrConfiguration

Type:
  • {minTotalBytes: number, minBytes: number, fastHalfLife: number, slowHalfLife: number}
Properties:
Name Type Description
minTotalBytes number Minimum number of bytes sampled before we trust the estimate. If we have not sampled much data, our estimate may not be accurate enough to trust.
minBytes number Minimum number of bytes, under which samples are discarded. Our models do not include latency information, so connection startup time (time to first byte) is considered part of the download time. Because of this, we should ignore very small downloads which would cause our estimate to be too low.
fastHalfLife number The quantity of prior samples (by weight) used when creating a new estimate, in seconds. Those prior samples make up half of the new estimate.
slowHalfLife number The quantity of prior samples (by weight) used when creating a new estimate, in seconds. Those prior samples make up half of the new estimate.

Properties:
Name Type Description
clockSyncUri string A default clock sync URI to be used with live streams which do not contain any clock sync information. The Date header from this URI will be used to determine the current time.
ignoreDrmInfo boolean If true will cause DASH parser to ignore DRM information specified by the manifest and treat it as if it signaled no particular key system and contained no init data. Defaults to false if not provided.
disableXlinkProcessing boolean If true, xlink-related processing will be disabled. Defaults to false if not provided.
xlinkFailGracefully boolean If true, xlink-related errors will result in a fallback to the tag's existing contents. If false, xlink-related errors will be propagated to the application and will result in a playback failure. Defaults to false if not provided.
ignoreMinBufferTime boolean If true will cause DASH parser to ignore minBufferTime from manifest. It allows player config to take precedence over manifest for rebufferingGoal. Defaults to false if not provided.
autoCorrectDrift boolean If true, ignore the availabilityStartTime in the manifest and instead use the segments to determine the live edge. This allows us to play streams that have a lot of drift. If false, we can't play content where the manifest specifies segments in the future. Defaults to true.
initialSegmentLimit number The maximum number of initial segments to generate for SegmentTemplate with fixed-duration segments. This is limited to avoid excessive memory consumption with very large timeShiftBufferDepth values.
ignoreSuggestedPresentationDelay boolean If true will cause DASH parser to ignore suggestedPresentationDelay from manifest. Defaults to false if not provided.
ignoreEmptyAdaptationSet boolean If true will cause DASH parser to ignore empty AdaptationSet from manifest. Defaults to false if not provided.

keySystemsByURI Object.<string, string> A map of scheme URI to key system name. Defaults to default key systems mapping handled by Shaka.
manifestPreprocessor function DEPRECATED: Use manifestPreprocessorTXml instead. Called immediately after the DASH manifest has been parsed into an XMLDocument. Provides a way for applications to perform efficient preprocessing of the manifest.
manifestPreprocessorTXml function Called immediately after the DASH manifest has been parsed into an XMLDocument. Provides a way for applications to perform efficient preprocessing of the manifest.
sequenceMode boolean If true, the media segments are appended to the SourceBuffer in "sequence mode" (ignoring their internal timestamps). Defaults to false.
enableAudioGroups boolean If set, audio streams will be grouped and filtered by their parent adaptation set ID. Defaults to false.
multiTypeVariantsAllowed boolean If true, the manifest parser will create variants that have multiple mimeTypes or codecs for video or for audio if there is no other choice. Meant for content where some periods are only available in one mimeType or codec, and other periods are only available in a different mimeType or codec. For example, a stream with baked-in ads where the audio codec does not match the main content. Might result in undesirable behavior if mediaSource.codecSwitchingStrategy is not set to SMOOTH. Defaults to true if SMOOTH codec switching is supported, RELOAD overwise.
useStreamOnceInPeriodFlattening boolean If period combiner is used, this option ensures every stream is used only once in period flattening. It speeds up underlying algorithm but may raise issues if manifest does not have stream consistency between periods. Defaults to false.
updatePeriod number Override the minimumUpdatePeriod of the manifest. The value is in second if the value is greater than the minimumUpdatePeriod, it will update the manifest less frequently. if you update the value during for a dynamic manifest, it will directly trigger a new download of the manifest Defaults to -1.
enableFastSwitching boolean If false, disables fast switching track recognition. Defaults to true.

Properties:
Name Type Description
ignoreTextStreamFailures boolean If true, ignore any errors in a text stream and filter out those streams.
ignoreImageStreamFailures boolean If true, ignore any errors in a image stream and filter out those streams.
defaultAudioCodec string The default audio codec if it is not specified in the HLS playlist. Defaults to 'mp4a.40.2'.
defaultVideoCodec string The default video codec if it is not specified in the HLS playlist. Defaults to 'avc1.42E01E'.
ignoreManifestProgramDateTime boolean If true, the HLS parser will ignore the EXT-X-PROGRAM-DATE-TIME tags in the manifest and use media sequence numbers instead. It also causes EXT-X-DATERANGE tags to be ignored. Meant for streams where EXT-X-PROGRAM-DATE-TIME is incorrect or malformed. Defaults to false.
ignoreManifestProgramDateTimeForTypes Array.<string> An array of strings representing types for which EXT-X-PROGRAM-DATE-TIME should be ignored. Only used if the the main ignoreManifestProgramDateTime is set to false. For example, setting this to ['text', 'video'] will cause the PDT values text and video streams to be ignored, while still using the PDT values for audio. Defaults to an empty array.
mediaPlaylistFullMimeType string A string containing a full mime type, including both the basic mime type and also the codecs. Used when the HLS parser parses a media playlist directly, required since all of the mime type and codecs information is contained within the master playlist. You can use the shaka.util.MimeUtils.getFullType() utility to format this value. Defaults to 'video/mp2t; codecs="avc1.42E01E, mp4a.40.2"'.
useSafariBehaviorForLive boolean If this is true, playback will set the availability window to the presentation delay. The player will be able to buffer ahead three segments, but the seek window will be zero-sized, to be consistent with Safari. If this is false, the seek window will be the entire duration. Defaults to true.
liveSegmentsDelay number The default presentation delay will be calculated as a number of segments. This is the number of segments for this calculation.. Defaults to 3.
sequenceMode boolean If true, the media segments are appended to the SourceBuffer in "sequence mode" (ignoring their internal timestamps). Defaults to true except on WebOS 3, Tizen 2, Tizen 3 and PlayStation 4 whose default value is false.
ignoreManifestTimestampsInSegmentsMode boolean If true, don't adjust the timestamp offset to account for manifest segment durations being out of sync with segment durations. In other words, assume that there are no gaps in the segments when appending to the SourceBuffer, even if the manifest and segment times disagree. Only applies when sequenceMode is false. Defaults to false.
disableCodecGuessing boolean If set to true, the HLS parser won't automatically guess or assume default codec for playlists with no "CODECS" attribute. Instead, it will attempt to extract the missing information from the media segment. As a consequence, lazy-loading media playlists won't be possible for this use case, which may result in longer video startup times. Defaults to false.
disableClosedCaptionsDetection boolean If true, disables the automatic detection of closed captions. Otherwise, in the absence of a EXT-X-MEDIA tag with TYPE="CLOSED-CAPTIONS", Shaka Player will attempt to detect captions based on the media data. Defaults to false.
allowLowLatencyByteRangeOptimization boolean If set to true, the HLS parser will optimize operation with LL and partial byte range segments. More info in https://www.akamai.com/blog/performance/-using-ll-hls-with-byte-range-addressing-to-achieve-interoperabi Defaults to true.

Manifest

A Manifest object describes a collection of streams (segmented audio, video, or text data) that share a common timeline. We call the collection of streams "the presentation" and their timeline "the presentation timeline". A Manifest describes one of two types of presentations: live and video-on-demand.

A live presentation begins at some point in time and either continues indefinitely or ends when the presentation stops broadcasting. For a live presentation, wall-clock time maps onto the presentation timeline, and the current wall-clock time maps to the live-edge (AKA "the current presentation time"). In contrast, a video-on-demand presentation exists entirely independent of wall-clock time.

A variant is a combination of an audio and a video streams that can be played together.

A stream has the same logical content as another stream if the only difference between the two is their quality. For example, an SD video stream and an HD video stream that depict the same scene have the same logical content; whereas an English audio stream and a French audio stream have different logical contents. The player can automatically switch between streams which have the same logical content to adapt to network conditions.

Properties:
Name Type Description
retryParameters shaka.extern.RetryParameters Retry parameters for segment requests.
failureCallback function A callback to decide what to do on a streaming failure. Default behavior is to retry on live streams and not on VOD.
rebufferingGoal number The minimum number of seconds of content that the StreamingEngine must buffer before it can begin playback or can continue playback after it has entered into a buffering state (i.e., after it has depleted one more more of its buffers).
bufferingGoal number The number of seconds of content that the StreamingEngine will attempt to buffer ahead of the playhead. This value must be greater than or equal to the rebuffering goal.
bufferBehind number The maximum number of seconds of content that the StreamingEngine will keep in buffer behind the playhead when it appends a new media segment. The StreamingEngine will evict content to meet this limit.
evictionGoal number The minimum duration in seconds of buffer overflow the StreamingEngine requires to start removing content from the buffer. Values less than 1.0 are not recommended.
ignoreTextStreamFailures boolean If true, the player will ignore text stream failures and continue playing other streams.
alwaysStreamText boolean If true, always stream text tracks, regardless of whether or not they are shown. This is necessary when using the browser's built-in controls, which are not capable of signaling display state changes back to Shaka Player. Defaults to false.
startAtSegmentBoundary boolean If true, adjust the start time backwards so it is at the start of a segment. This affects both explicit start times and calculated start time for live streams. This can put us further from the live edge. Defaults to false.
gapDetectionThreshold number The maximum distance (in seconds) before a gap when we'll automatically jump. This value defaults to 0.5.
gapJumpTimerTime number The polling time in seconds to check for gaps in the media. This value defaults to 0.25.
durationBackoff number By default, we will not allow seeking to exactly the duration of a presentation. This field is the number of seconds before duration we will seek to when the user tries to seek to or start playback at the duration. To disable this behavior, the config can be set to 0. We recommend using the default value unless you have a good reason not to.
safeSeekOffset number The amount of seconds that should be added when repositioning the playhead after falling out of the availability window or seek. This gives the player more time to buffer before falling outside again, but increases the forward jump in the stream skipping more content. This is helpful for lower bandwidth scenarios. Defaults to 5 if not provided.
stallEnabled boolean When set to true, the stall detector logic will run. If the playhead stops moving for stallThreshold seconds, the player will either seek or pause/play to resolve the stall, depending on the value of stallSkip.
stallThreshold number The maximum number of seconds that may elapse without the playhead moving (when playback is expected) before it will be labeled as a stall.
stallSkip number The number of seconds that the player will skip forward when a stall has been detected. If 0, the player will pause and immediately play instead of seeking. A value of 0 is recommended and provided as default on TV platforms (WebOS, Tizen, Chromecast, etc).
useNativeHlsOnSafari boolean Desktop Safari has both MediaSource and their native HLS implementation. Depending on the application's needs, it may prefer one over the other. Only applies to clear streams Defaults to true.
useNativeHlsForFairPlay boolean Desktop Safari has both MediaSource and their native HLS implementation. Depending on the application's needs, it may prefer one over the other. Warning when disabled: Where single-key DRM streams work fine, multi-keys streams is showing unexpected behaviours (stall, audio playing with video freezes, ...). Use with care. Defaults to true.
inaccurateManifestTolerance number The maximum difference, in seconds, between the times in the manifest and the times in the segments. Larger values allow us to compensate for more drift (up to one segment duration). Smaller values reduce the incidence of extra segment requests necessary to compensate for drift.
lowLatencyMode boolean If true, low latency streaming mode is enabled. If lowLatencyMode is set to true, it changes the default config values for other things, see: docs/tutorials/config.md
autoLowLatencyMode boolean If the stream is low latency and the user has not configured the lowLatencyMode, but if it has been configured to activate the lowLatencyMode if a stream of this type is detected, we automatically activate the lowLatencyMode. Defaults to false.
forceHTTP boolean If true, if the protocol is HTTPs change it to HTTP. If both forceHTTP and forceHTTPS are set, forceHTTPS wins.
forceHTTPS boolean If true, if the protocol is HTTP change it to HTTPs. If both forceHTTP and forceHTTPS are set, forceHTTPS wins.
preferNativeHls boolean If true, prefer native HLS playback when possible, regardless of platform.
updateIntervalSeconds number The minimum number of seconds to see if the manifest has changes.
dispatchAllEmsgBoxes boolean If true, all emsg boxes are parsed and dispatched.
observeQualityChanges boolean If true, monitor media quality changes and emit shaka.Player.MediaQualityChangedEvent.
maxDisabledTime number The maximum time a variant can be disabled when NETWORK HTTP_ERROR is reached, in seconds. If all variants are disabled this way, NETWORK HTTP_ERROR will be thrown.
parsePrftBox boolean If true, will raise a shaka.extern.ProducerReferenceTime player event (event name 'prft'). The event will be raised only once per playback session as program start date will not change, and would save parsing the segment multiple times needlessly. Defaults to false.
segmentPrefetchLimit number The maximum number of segments for each active stream to be prefetched ahead of playhead in parallel. If 0, the segments will be fetched sequentially. Defaults to 0.
prefetchAudioLanguages Array.<string> The audio languages to prefetch. Defaults to an empty array.
disableAudioPrefetch boolean If set and prefetch limit is defined, it will prevent from prefetching data for audio. Defaults to false.
disableTextPrefetch boolean If set and prefetch limit is defined, it will prevent from prefetching data for text. Defaults to false.
disableVideoPrefetch boolean If set and prefetch limit is defined, it will prevent from prefetching data for video. Defaults to false.
liveSync boolean Enable the live stream sync against the live edge by changing the playback rate. Defaults to false. Note: on some SmartTVs, if this is activated, it may not work or the sound may be lost when activated.
liveSyncTargetLatencyTolerance number Latency tolerance for target latency, in seconds. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 0.5.
liveSyncMaxLatency number Maximum acceptable latency, in seconds. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 1.
liveSyncPlaybackRate number Playback rate used for latency chasing. It is recommended to use a value between 1 and 2. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 1.1.
liveSyncMinLatency number Minimum acceptable latency, in seconds. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 0.
liveSyncMinPlaybackRate number Minimum playback rate used for latency chasing. It is recommended to use a value between 0 and 1. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 0.95.
liveSyncPanicMode boolean If true, panic mode for live sync is enabled. When enabled, will set the playback rate to the liveSyncMinPlaybackRate until playback has continued past a rebuffering for longer than the liveSyncPanicThreshold. Defaults to false.
liveSyncPanicThreshold number Number of seconds that playback stays in panic mode after a rebuffering. Defaults to 60
allowMediaSourceRecoveries boolean Indicate if we should recover from VIDEO_ERROR resetting Media Source. Defaults to true.
minTimeBetweenRecoveries number The minimum time between recoveries when VIDEO_ERROR is reached, in seconds. Defaults to 5.
vodDynamicPlaybackRate boolean Adapt the playback rate of the player to keep the buffer full. Defaults to false.
vodDynamicPlaybackRateLowBufferRate number Playback rate to use if the buffer is too small. Defaults to 0.95.
vodDynamicPlaybackRateBufferRatio number Ratio of the bufferingGoal as the low threshold for setting the playback rate to vodDynamicPlaybackRateLowBufferRate. Defaults to 0.5.
infiniteLiveStreamDuration boolean If true, the media source live duration set as aInfinity Defaults to false .
preloadNextUrlWindow number The window of time at the end of the presentation to begin preloading the next URL, such as one specified by a urn:mpeg:dash:chaining:2016 element in DASH. Measured in seconds. If the value is 0, the next URL will not be preloaded at all. Defaults to 30 .
loadTimeout number The maximum timeout to reject the load when using src= in case the content does not work correctly. Measured in seconds. Defaults to 30 .
clearDecodingCache boolean Clears decodingInfo and MediaKeySystemAccess cache during player unload as these objects may become corrupt and cause issues during subsequent playbacks on some platforms. Defaults to true on PlayStation devices and to false on other devices.
dontChooseCodecs boolean If true, we don't choose codecs in the player, and keep all the variants. Defaults to false.

AbrConfiguration

Type:
  • {enabled: boolean, useNetworkInformation: boolean, defaultBandwidthEstimate: number, restrictions: shaka.extern.Restrictions, switchInterval: number, bandwidthUpgradeTarget: number, bandwidthDowngradeTarget: number, advanced: shaka.extern.AdvancedAbrConfiguration, restrictToElementSize: boolean, restrictToScreenSize: boolean, ignoreDevicePixelRatio: boolean, clearBufferSwitch: boolean, safeMarginSwitch: number, cacheLoadThreshold: number}
Properties:
Name Type Description
enabled boolean If true, enable adaptation by the current AbrManager. Defaults to true.
useNetworkInformation boolean If true, use the Network Information API in the current AbrManager, if it is available in the browser environment. If the Network Information API is used, Shaka Player will ignore the defaultBandwidthEstimate config. Defaults to true.
defaultBandwidthEstimate number The default bandwidth estimate to use if there is not enough data, in bit/sec. Only used if useNetworkInformation is false, or if the Network Information API is not available.
restrictions shaka.extern.Restrictions The restrictions to apply to ABR decisions. These are "soft" restrictions. Any track that fails to meet these restrictions will not be selected automatically, but will still appear in the track list and can still be selected via selectVariantTrack(). If no tracks meet these restrictions, AbrManager should not fail, but choose a low-res or low-bandwidth variant instead. It is the responsibility of AbrManager implementations to follow these rules and implement this behavior.
switchInterval number The minimum amount of time that must pass between switches, in seconds. This keeps us from changing too often and annoying the user.
bandwidthUpgradeTarget number The fraction of the estimated bandwidth which we should try to use when upgrading.
bandwidthDowngradeTarget number The largest fraction of the estimated bandwidth we should use. We should downgrade to avoid this.
advanced shaka.extern.AdvancedAbrConfiguration Advanced ABR configuration
restrictToElementSize boolean If true, restrict the quality to media element size. Note: The use of ResizeObserver is required for it to work properly. If true without ResizeObserver, it behaves as false. Defaults false.
restrictToScreenSize boolean If true, restrict the quality to screen size. Defaults false.
ignoreDevicePixelRatio boolean If true,device pixel ratio is ignored when restricting the quality to media element size or screen size. Defaults false.
clearBufferSwitch boolean If true, the buffer will be cleared during the switch. The default automatic behavior is false to have a smoother transition. On some device it's better to clear buffer. Defaults false.
safeMarginSwitch number Optional amount of buffer (in seconds) to retain when clearing the buffer during the automatic switch. Useful for switching variant quickly without causing a buffering event. Defaults to 0 if not provided. Ignored if clearBuffer is false. Can cause hiccups on some browsers if chosen too small, e.g. The amount of two segments is a fair minimum to consider as safeMargin value.
cacheLoadThreshold number Indicates the value in milliseconds from which a request is not considered cached. Defaults to 20.

Type:
  • {minTotalBytes: number, minBytes: number, fastHalfLife: number, slowHalfLife: number}
Properties:
Name Type Description
minTotalBytes number Minimum number of bytes sampled before we trust the estimate. If we have not sampled much data, our estimate may not be accurate enough to trust.
minBytes number Minimum number of bytes, under which samples are discarded. Our models do not include latency information, so connection startup time (time to first byte) is considered part of the download time. Because of this, we should ignore very small downloads which would cause our estimate to be too low.
fastHalfLife number The quantity of prior samples (by weight) used when creating a new estimate, in seconds. Those prior samples make up half of the new estimate.
slowHalfLife number The quantity of prior samples (by weight) used when creating a new estimate, in seconds. Those prior samples make up half of the new estimate.

Properties:
Name Type Description
clockSyncUri string A default clock sync URI to be used with live streams which do not contain any clock sync information. The Date header from this URI will be used to determine the current time.
ignoreDrmInfo boolean If true will cause DASH parser to ignore DRM information specified by the manifest and treat it as if it signaled no particular key system and contained no init data. Defaults to false if not provided.
disableXlinkProcessing boolean If true, xlink-related processing will be disabled. Defaults to false if not provided.
xlinkFailGracefully boolean If true, xlink-related errors will result in a fallback to the tag's existing contents. If false, xlink-related errors will be propagated to the application and will result in a playback failure. Defaults to false if not provided.
ignoreMinBufferTime boolean If true will cause DASH parser to ignore minBufferTime from manifest. It allows player config to take precedence over manifest for rebufferingGoal. Defaults to false if not provided.
autoCorrectDrift boolean If true, ignore the availabilityStartTime in the manifest and instead use the segments to determine the live edge. This allows us to play streams that have a lot of drift. If false, we can't play content where the manifest specifies segments in the future. Defaults to true.
initialSegmentLimit number The maximum number of initial segments to generate for SegmentTemplate with fixed-duration segments. This is limited to avoid excessive memory consumption with very large timeShiftBufferDepth values.

sequenceMode boolean If true, the media segments are appended to the SourceBuffer in "sequence mode" (ignoring their internal timestamps). Defaults to false.
enableAudioGroups boolean If set, audio streams will be grouped and filtered by their parent adaptation set ID. Defaults to false.
multiTypeVariantsAllowed boolean If true, the manifest parser will create variants that have multiple mimeTypes or codecs for video or for audio if there is no other choice. Meant for content where some periods are only available in one mimeType or codec, and other periods are only available in a different mimeType or codec. For example, a stream with baked-in ads where the audio codec does not match the main content. Might result in undesirable behavior if mediaSource.codecSwitchingStrategy is not set to SMOOTH. Defaults to true if SMOOTH codec switching is supported, RELOAD overwise.
useStreamOnceInPeriodFlattening boolean If period combiner is used, this option ensures every stream is used only once in period flattening. It speeds up underlying algorithm but may raise issues if manifest does not have stream consistency between periods. Defaults to false.
updatePeriod number Override the minimumUpdatePeriod of the manifest. The value is in second if the value is greater than the minimumUpdatePeriod, it will update the manifest less frequently. if you update the value during for a dynamic manifest, it will directly trigger a new download of the manifest Defaults to -1.

Properties:
Name Type Description
ignoreTextStreamFailures boolean If true, ignore any errors in a text stream and filter out those streams.
ignoreImageStreamFailures boolean If true, ignore any errors in a image stream and filter out those streams.
defaultAudioCodec string The default audio codec if it is not specified in the HLS playlist. Defaults to 'mp4a.40.2'.
defaultVideoCodec string The default video codec if it is not specified in the HLS playlist. Defaults to 'avc1.42E01E'.
ignoreManifestProgramDateTime boolean If true, the HLS parser will ignore the EXT-X-PROGRAM-DATE-TIME tags in the manifest and use media sequence numbers instead. It also causes EXT-X-DATERANGE tags to be ignored. Meant for streams where EXT-X-PROGRAM-DATE-TIME is incorrect or malformed. Defaults to false.
ignoreManifestProgramDateTimeForTypes Array.<string> An array of strings representing types for which EXT-X-PROGRAM-DATE-TIME should be ignored. Only used if the the main ignoreManifestProgramDateTime is set to false. For example, setting this to ['text', 'video'] will cause the PDT values text and video streams to be ignored, while still using the PDT values for audio. Defaults to an empty array.
mediaPlaylistFullMimeType string A string containing a full mime type, including both the basic mime type and also the codecs. Used when the HLS parser parses a media playlist directly, required since all of the mime type and codecs information is contained within the master playlist. You can use the shaka.util.MimeUtils.getFullType() utility to format this value. Defaults to 'video/mp2t; codecs="avc1.42E01E, mp4a.40.2"'.
useSafariBehaviorForLive boolean If this is true, playback will set the availability window to the presentation delay. The player will be able to buffer ahead three segments, but the seek window will be zero-sized, to be consistent with Safari. If this is false, the seek window will be the entire duration. Defaults to true.
liveSegmentsDelay number The default presentation delay will be calculated as a number of segments. This is the number of segments for this calculation.. Defaults to 3.
sequenceMode boolean If true, the media segments are appended to the SourceBuffer in "sequence mode" (ignoring their internal timestamps). Defaults to true except on WebOS 3, Tizen 2, Tizen 3 and PlayStation 4 whose default value is false.
ignoreManifestTimestampsInSegmentsMode boolean If true, don't adjust the timestamp offset to account for manifest segment durations being out of sync with segment durations. In other words, assume that there are no gaps in the segments when appending to the SourceBuffer, even if the manifest and segment times disagree. Only applies when sequenceMode is false. Defaults to false.
disableCodecGuessing boolean If set to true, the HLS parser won't automatically guess or assume default codec for playlists with no "CODECS" attribute. Instead, it will attempt to extract the missing information from the media segment. As a consequence, lazy-loading media playlists won't be possible for this use case, which may result in longer video startup times. Defaults to false.
disableClosedCaptionsDetection boolean If true, disables the automatic detection of closed captions. Otherwise, in the absence of a EXT-X-MEDIA tag with TYPE="CLOSED-CAPTIONS", Shaka Player will attempt to detect captions based on the media data. Defaults to false.
allowLowLatencyByteRangeOptimization boolean If set to true, the HLS parser will optimize operation with LL and partial byte range segments. More info in https://www.akamai.com/blog/performance/-using-ll-hls-with-byte-range-addressing-to-achieve-interoperabi Defaults to true.

Manifest

A Manifest object describes a collection of streams (segmented audio, video, or text data) that share a common timeline. We call the collection of streams "the presentation" and their timeline "the presentation timeline". A Manifest describes one of two types of presentations: live and video-on-demand.

A live presentation begins at some point in time and either continues indefinitely or ends when the presentation stops broadcasting. For a live presentation, wall-clock time maps onto the presentation timeline, and the current wall-clock time maps to the live-edge (AKA "the current presentation time"). In contrast, a video-on-demand presentation exists entirely independent of wall-clock time.

A variant is a combination of an audio and a video streams that can be played together.

A stream has the same logical content as another stream if the only difference between the two is their quality. For example, an SD video stream and an HD video stream that depict the same scene have the same logical content; whereas an English audio stream and a French audio stream have different logical contents. The player can automatically switch between streams which have the same logical content to adapt to network conditions.

In other words, assume that there are no gaps in the segments when appending to the SourceBuffer, even if the manifest and segment times disagree. Only applies when sequenceMode is false, and only for HLS streams. Defaults to false.

Properties:
Name Type Description
retryParameters shaka.extern.RetryParameters Retry parameters for segment requests.
failureCallback function A callback to decide what to do on a streaming failure. Default behavior is to retry on live streams and not on VOD.
rebufferingGoal number The minimum number of seconds of content that the StreamingEngine must buffer before it can begin playback or can continue playback after it has entered into a buffering state (i.e., after it has depleted one more more of its buffers).
bufferingGoal number The number of seconds of content that the StreamingEngine will attempt to buffer ahead of the playhead. This value must be greater than or equal to the rebuffering goal.
bufferBehind number The maximum number of seconds of content that the StreamingEngine will keep in buffer behind the playhead when it appends a new media segment. The StreamingEngine will evict content to meet this limit.
evictionGoal number The minimum duration in seconds of buffer overflow the StreamingEngine requires to start removing content from the buffer. Values less than 1.0 are not recommended.
ignoreTextStreamFailures boolean If true, the player will ignore text stream failures and continue playing other streams.
alwaysStreamText boolean If true, always stream text tracks, regardless of whether or not they are shown. This is necessary when using the browser's built-in controls, which are not capable of signaling display state changes back to Shaka Player. Defaults to false.
startAtSegmentBoundary boolean If true, adjust the start time backwards so it is at the start of a segment. This affects both explicit start times and calculated start time for live streams. This can put us further from the live edge. Defaults to false.
gapDetectionThreshold number The maximum distance (in seconds) before a gap when we'll automatically jump. This value defaults to 0.5.
gapJumpTimerTime number The polling time in seconds to check for gaps in the media. This value defaults to 0.25.
durationBackoff number By default, we will not allow seeking to exactly the duration of a presentation. This field is the number of seconds before duration we will seek to when the user tries to seek to or start playback at the duration. To disable this behavior, the config can be set to 0. We recommend using the default value unless you have a good reason not to.
safeSeekOffset number The amount of seconds that should be added when repositioning the playhead after falling out of the availability window or seek. This gives the player more time to buffer before falling outside again, but increases the forward jump in the stream skipping more content. This is helpful for lower bandwidth scenarios. Defaults to 5 if not provided.
stallEnabled boolean When set to true, the stall detector logic will run. If the playhead stops moving for stallThreshold seconds, the player will either seek or pause/play to resolve the stall, depending on the value of stallSkip.
stallThreshold number The maximum number of seconds that may elapse without the playhead moving (when playback is expected) before it will be labeled as a stall.
stallSkip number The number of seconds that the player will skip forward when a stall has been detected. If 0, the player will pause and immediately play instead of seeking. A value of 0 is recommended and provided as default on TV platforms (WebOS, Tizen, Chromecast, etc).
useNativeHlsOnSafari boolean Desktop Safari has both MediaSource and their native HLS implementation. Depending on the application's needs, it may prefer one over the other. Only applies to clear streams Defaults to true.
useNativeHlsForFairPlay boolean Desktop Safari has both MediaSource and their native HLS implementation. Depending on the application's needs, it may prefer one over the other. Warning when disabled: Where single-key DRM streams work fine, multi-keys streams is showing unexpected behaviours (stall, audio playing with video freezes, ...). Use with care. Defaults to true.
inaccurateManifestTolerance number The maximum difference, in seconds, between the times in the manifest and the times in the segments. Larger values allow us to compensate for more drift (up to one segment duration). Smaller values reduce the incidence of extra segment requests necessary to compensate for drift.
lowLatencyMode boolean If true, low latency streaming mode is enabled. If lowLatencyMode is set to true, it changes the default config values for other things, see: docs/tutorials/config.md
autoLowLatencyMode boolean If the stream is low latency and the user has not configured the lowLatencyMode, but if it has been configured to activate the lowLatencyMode if a stream of this type is detected, we automatically activate the lowLatencyMode. Defaults to false.
forceHTTP boolean If true, if the protocol is HTTPs change it to HTTP. If both forceHTTP and forceHTTPS are set, forceHTTPS wins.
forceHTTPS boolean If true, if the protocol is HTTP change it to HTTPs. If both forceHTTP and forceHTTPS are set, forceHTTPS wins.
preferNativeHls boolean If true, prefer native HLS playback when possible, regardless of platform.
updateIntervalSeconds number The minimum number of seconds to see if the manifest has changes.
dispatchAllEmsgBoxes boolean If true, all emsg boxes are parsed and dispatched.
observeQualityChanges boolean If true, monitor media quality changes and emit shaka.Player.MediaQualityChangedEvent.
maxDisabledTime number The maximum time a variant can be disabled when NETWORK HTTP_ERROR is reached, in seconds. If all variants are disabled this way, NETWORK HTTP_ERROR will be thrown.
parsePrftBox boolean If true, will raise a shaka.extern.ProducerReferenceTime player event (event name 'prft'). The event will be raised only once per playback session as program start date will not change, and would save parsing the segment multiple times needlessly. Defaults to false.
segmentPrefetchLimit number The maximum number of segments for each active stream to be prefetched ahead of playhead in parallel. If 0, the segments will be fetched sequentially. Defaults to 0.
prefetchAudioLanguages Array.<string> The audio languages to prefetch. Defaults to an empty array.
disableAudioPrefetch boolean If set and prefetch limit is defined, it will prevent from prefetching data for audio. Defaults to false.
disableTextPrefetch boolean If set and prefetch limit is defined, it will prevent from prefetching data for text. Defaults to false.
disableVideoPrefetch boolean If set and prefetch limit is defined, it will prevent from prefetching data for video. Defaults to false.
liveSync boolean Enable the live stream sync against the live edge by changing the playback rate. Defaults to false. Note: on some SmartTVs, if this is activated, it may not work or the sound may be lost when activated.
liveSyncTargetLatencyTolerance number Latency tolerance for target latency, in seconds. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 0.5.
liveSyncMaxLatency number Maximum acceptable latency, in seconds. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 1.

liveSyncMinLatency number Minimum acceptable latency, in seconds. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 0.
liveSyncMinPlaybackRate number Minimum playback rate used for latency chasing. It is recommended to use a value between 0 and 1. Effective only if liveSync is true. Defaults to 0.95.
liveSyncPanicMode boolean If true, panic mode for live sync is enabled. When enabled, will set the playback rate to the liveSyncMinPlaybackRate until playback has continued past a rebuffering for longer than the liveSyncPanicThreshold. Defaults to false.
liveSyncPanicThreshold number Number of seconds that playback stays in panic mode after a rebuffering. Defaults to 60
allowMediaSourceRecoveries boolean Indicate if we should recover from VIDEO_ERROR resetting Media Source. Defaults to true.
minTimeBetweenRecoveries number The minimum time between recoveries when VIDEO_ERROR is reached, in seconds. Defaults to 5.
vodDynamicPlaybackRate boolean Adapt the playback rate of the player to keep the buffer full. Defaults to false.
vodDynamicPlaybackRateLowBufferRate number Playback rate to use if the buffer is too small. Defaults to 0.95.
vodDynamicPlaybackRateBufferRatio number Ratio of the bufferingGoal as the low threshold for setting the playback rate to vodDynamicPlaybackRateLowBufferRate. Defaults to 0.5.
infiniteLiveStreamDuration boolean If true, the media source live duration set as aInfinity Defaults to false .
preloadNextUrlWindow number The window of time at the end of the presentation to begin preloading the next URL, such as one specified by a urn:mpeg:dash:chaining:2016 element in DASH. Measured in seconds. If the value is 0, the next URL will not be preloaded at all. Defaults to 30 .
loadTimeout number The maximum timeout to reject the load when using src= in case the content does not work correctly. Measured in seconds. Defaults to 30 .
clearDecodingCache boolean Clears decodingInfo and MediaKeySystemAccess cache during player unload as these objects may become corrupt and cause issues during subsequent playbacks on some platforms. Defaults to true on PlayStation devices and to false on other devices.
dontChooseCodecs boolean If true, we don't choose codecs in the player, and keep all the variants. Defaults to false.
