Open Leaders: DASH.js

Power geek: Video.js


VLC Player



Online free video editor: Wevideo

Online free MPEG-DASH generator

The free tools are great.

You can also generate MPEG-2 TS format streaming file using VLC player.

It seems that DASH.JS is the only free JS API support HTTP live streaming in the client without any other plugin.

However, it can’t work in IE 11- and iOS.
