Media Flow Controller CLI Commands : virtual-player : virtual-player type qss-streamlet

virtual-player type qss-streamlet
Use type qss-streamlet (formerly type 2) virtual players to enforce assured-flow via rate maps. Useful for Adaptive Bit Rate video delivery where the URI format signals the assured flow rate. Use no virtual-player <name> to delete. In prefix mode, use no rate-map match <string> to delete one particular entry. See “Virtual Player Options” on page 72 and “Using virtual-player type qss-streamlet rate-map” on page 73 for implementation details.
virtual-player <name> type qss-streamlet
connection max-bandwidth <kbps>
rate-map match <string> rate <kbps> [query-string-parm <string> | uol <offset><length>]
Create a virtual-player <name> type qss-streamlet. Arguments:
connection max-bandwidth—Set the maximum bandwidth for a session. The actual session bandwidth is between the AFR for a given URL as determined by its configured rate-map rate, and this value. Even if there’s available bandwidth in the link, Media Flow Controller doesn’t allocate more than this value for a session. Default is 0 (unbounded) with the Media Flow Controller license, 200 kbps without it; you must have the license to change the unlicensed default. Use no connection to reset default.
rate-map—The configured rate-map rate extracts the value from the URL to calculate the AFR for each HTTP request. By default, the match string (length 2 bytes, i.e. 01) is extracted by going to the end of the URL and skipping 12 Bytes from the end; the value in that location is mapped to the configured rate in kbps. Use the optional query-string-parm argument to indicate a different spot in the URL (where the specified query-string-parm is) to look for the rate value. Note! The optional uol argument is Not Supported. For more details, see “Using virtual-player type qss-streamlet rate-map” on page 73.
