Step 4: Consume media data - Amazon Kinesis Video Streams

Step 4: Consume media data

You can consume media data by either viewing it in the console, or by creating an application that reads media data from a stream using Hypertext Live Streaming (HLS).

View media data in the console

To view the media data sent from your camera in the Amazon Kinesis Video Streams console, open the Amazon Kinesis Video Streams console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/kinesisvideo/home, and choose the ExampleStream stream on the Video Streams page. The video plays in the Media Playback pane.

Consume media data using HLS

You can create a client application that consumes data from a Kinesis video stream using HLS. For information about creating an application that consumes media data using HLS, see Kinesis Video Streams playback.
