 HLS-Stream-Creator
 ==================
 
-Simple Bash Script to take a media file, segment it and create an M3U8 playlist for serving using HLS
+Introduction
+-------------
 
+HLS-Stream-Creator is a simple BASH Script designed to take a media file, segment it and create an M3U8 playlist for serving using HLS.
+There are numerous tools out there which are far better suited to the task, and offer many more options. This project only exists because I was asked to look
+into HTTP Live Streaming in depth, so after reading the [IETF Draft](http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-pantos-http-live-streaming-11 "HLS on IETF") I figured I'd start with the basics by creating a script to encode arbitrary video into a VOD style HLS feed.
+
+
+
+Usage
+------
+
+Usage is incredibly simple
+
+```
+./HLS-Stream-Creator.sh inputfile segmentlength(seconds)
+```
+
+So to split a video file called *example.avi* into segments of 10 seconds, we'd run
+
+```
+./HLS-Stream-Creator.sh example.avi 10
+```
+
+
+
+Output
+-------
+
+As of version 1, the HLS resources will be output to the directory *output*.
+
+
+
+Using a Specific FFMPEG binary
+-------------------------------
+
+There may be occasions where you don't want to use the *ffmpeg* that appears in PATH. At the top of the script, the ffmpeg command is defined, so change this to suit your needs
+
+```
+FFMPEG='/path/to/different/ffmpeg'
+```
