  • Creating an audio streaming server with DASH, HLS or SmoothStreaming
    2 projects | | 25 Oct 2022
    I am currently building a home server and want to create my own audio book server and mobile application. On the mobile site I will use react native with react-native-track-player. The TrackPlayer supports DASH, HLS or SmoothStreaming. Now I am struggling to build a server and providing one of these formats. When I search for a solution there are many recommendations to create a stream like const stream = fs.createReadStream(filePath); and pipe it like stream.pipe(res);. This is working in the browser but seems not to be compatible with the TrackPlayer. When looking for solutions to create a stream based on DASH, HLS or SmoothStreaming I just find some complex solutions like the Node-Media-Server which seems a bit overkill for what I am trying to do. So my question is, do you know a simpler solution to send an mp3 file through an express endpoint in DASH, HLS or SmoothStreaming format? Or do you have any recommendations where I can have a look?
