What is a m3u8 stream?

An m3u8 file or m3u8 playlist file is used by various audio and video playback programs. A m3u8 file specifies the locations of one or more media files, rather than the video itself. Therefore, a HLS player is required to download and play the actual video files. M3U8 files use the same formatting as .M3U files, except the text stored in the files uses UTF-8 character encoding.

What is HLS?

HTTP Live Streaming (also known as HLS) is an HTTP-based media streaming communications protocol implemented by Apple Inc. as part of its QuickTime, Safari, OS X, and iOS software. It works by breaking the overall stream into a sequence of small HTTP-based file downloads, each download loading one short chunk of an overall potentially unbounded transport stream.
