Consume media data - Amazon Kinesis Video Streams

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 in the console

In another browser tab, open the AWS Management Console. In the Kinesis Video Streams Dashboard, select Video streams.

Select the name of your stream in the list of streams. Use the search bar, if necessary.

Expand the Media playback section. If the video is still uploading, it will be shown. If the upload has finished, select the double-left arrow.

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.
