Title: STREAMING MEDIA TRANSMISSION AND PLAY METHOD, AND TRANSMISSION AND PLAY DEVICE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to the technical field of networks, and provides a streaming media transmission and play method, and transmission and play device. The method comprises: dividing, according to the HLS protocol, streaming media data into multiple first fragment files; dividing, according to a P2P protocol, the streaming media data into multiple second fragment files; adding association information to an m3u8 index file; and sending the first fragment files and m3u8 index file to a CDN, and sending the second fragment files to a P2P network, such that a streaming media player client end obtains the streaming media data respectively from the CDN and P2P network and plays the same. The present invention effectively reduces, by employing a CDN and P2P network to send streaming media data to a streaming media player client end and establishing an association relationship between fragment files of the streaming media data in said two networks with an m3u8 index file of the HLS protocol, a stress on a CDN server, thereby reducing a server cost of a streaming media system.
