A new plugin has been release for hollywood and is able to open and stream files from HTTP sources as if they were stored on a local drive. Once this plugin has been activated, all Hollywood functions that deal with files will “automatically” be able to open files from HTTP sources as well. httpstreamer.hwp uses a sophisticated multi-threaded design for highly efficient HTTP streaming. Each HTTP connection is managed by a dedicated thread for optimal performance. The plugin also supports Hollywood 6.0’s new streaming APIs which means that you will be able to stream audio and video files from HTTP sources with plugins like avcodec.hwp.
