m3u8 file
Pros* You can have more than one video as part of the response. * The server load is pretty light so you would not need too many servers to support it. * We can easily switch from one CDN to another.
Cons* Some platforms may not be supporting it. * The players would need to make an extra call to load the videos. * We do not have a direct view on which videos are loaded by whom unless we add tracking parameter. * 302 is not supported within a m3u8 by JWPlayer.
