I’m playing around with the Twitch v5 api on ios and I’ve gotten an embedded webview to play selected streams but I’m curious is there a way to play live streams / vods using a different method such as AVPlayer or MobileVLCKit?
I’ve done a lot of research and have tested different methods (AVPlayer / MobileVLCKit) but have not had any luck. I’d like to find some kind of native media player and not have to rely on a web based solution.
UPDATE I’ve found a couple older posts where people have commented that using the available API there is no way to get the m3u8 url of a stream and the ONLY way to play a stream (live or vod) is via the embedded player. Is this true?
