Apple HLS Live Streaming with MojoCP

Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) stands as a pioneering streaming protocol crafted by Apple Inc., revolutionizing the delivery of live and on-demand video and audio content. Its adaptability extends across a multitude of devices, catering not only to Apple's ecosystem encompassing iPhones, iPads, and Apple TVs but also ensuring compatibility with non-Apple devices like Android phones and tablets.
