m3u8 playlist generator

Project description


A Very simple m3u8 generator

This is a simple m3u8 generator, it takes start, end, and duration and outputs a m3u8 (HLS)

Tested on :
Python 2.7.5 & 3.5

### Install
clone this repo
`git clone`

This is made using the draft [](

### How to use
Let's say you have some video you want to serve

You will need :

- the path to the media (can be relative depending how you serve it)
- duration

You need to create a list containing one or more dictionaries :

from m3u8_generator import PlaylistGenerator
playlist_entries = [
'name': "Awesomevideo_001.mp4",
'duration' : '10.04',


playlist = PlaylistGenarator(playlist_entries).generate()

The idea of this is to use no dependecy and be as fast as possible,
here at []( we generate a lot of playlist, they need to be as fast as it can be.
any suggestion please let us know.
