Ad stitching in live streams?

Is it possible to insert any sort of advertising in live streams in CE at all? Thanks!


Yes, it is possible but depending on your distribution, you may have to compile your own NodeJS and gyp versions.
Please see here:

For RHEL/CentOS 7, you can try installing the kaltura-play-server RPM from the repo, for CentOS/RHEL6, for example, you will need to do it manually, due to the version constraints I mentioned.


If I understand correctly this play server does server-side insertion by repackaging the ts segments within the HLS stream. Are you saying that client-side insertion (using VAST and the player itself) is not possible with hls live streams the way it works with VOD?
