Non webView solution for ios playback?


I’m playing around with the Twitch v5 api on ios and I’ve gotten an embedded webview to play selected streams but I’m curious is there a way to play live streams / vods using a different method such as AVPlayer or MobileVLCKit?

I’ve done a lot of research and have tested different methods (AVPlayer / MobileVLCKit) but have not had any luck. I’d like to find some kind of native media player and not have to rely on a web based solution.

UPDATE I’ve found a couple older posts where people have commented that using the available API there is no way to get the m3u8 url of a stream and the ONLY way to play a stream (live or vod) is via the embedded player. Is this true?
