Please note that as of June 2022, we have deprecated the
add_audio_onlyquery parameter on
add_audio_onlyparameter added an audio-only variant to the HLS manifest. However, this audio-only variant is no longer required as Apple’s HLS authoring spec no longer mandates this. In addition, many video players across web and mobile do not support this audio-only variant. For these reasons, Mux has chosen to deprecate this feature.
When people think about building an awesome video experience, their first thought is probably around the visual aspect of it, e.g. how it looks on different devices, whether to have captions, or what player controls to expose. But equally as important is the audio experience and providing flexibility and options around how it interacts with your video.
We’re always thinking about how to improve the video experience and that includes audio. We’re happy to unveil a new feature that can augment your video: audio delivery for video playback.
This feature extracts the audio from a video and gives you the option to deliver just the audio for playback. There’s a couple different ways you can use this:
Typically to get this functionality, you would have to upload video and audio separately then switch between the two on player-side. With this new feature, you don’t have to do that and the workflow is simplified. Plus, now you don’t have to pay for both ingests. 🎉
This is an opt-in feature available for both on-demand and live streaming videos. To learn more, check out this guide.
We’re excited to add this to our collection of audio features. We previously released audio-only input for VOD and audio normalization, which are both available to all Mux Video customers. As always, we welcome feedback on existing features and future ones you'd like to see!
