VariantSegmentTemplate

A template to use to construct the URL of every GetPlaylist action that is produced by HPE Media Server, including the "http://" prefix. Setting this action parameter overrides the value set by the VariantSegmentTemplate configuration parameter in the rolling buffer configuration file.

You should only need to set this parameter if your media player sends requests to an application in front of HPE Media Server.

You can use the following macros:
