Currently the server buffers about 3 seconds of video. If there is an interruption longer than 3 seconds, it switches to the next item in the playlist. However, sometimes the network may need 10 seconds long window because only within 10 seconds it can manage to transfer all the data (in average). Is there a setting in Wowza to manually specify the buffer time for live applications?
If you are using the loop until live addon, or something like that, switches occur in IMediaStreamActionNotify.onPublish() and IMediaStreamActionNotify.onUnPublish(). The interruption you describe probably triggers IMediaStreamActionNotify.onUnPublish()
Thanks Roger. Somehow I have expected that both the sorting buffer and the delay buffer are already part of the servers normal processing. Is it possible to share information about what amount of delay can we count on with the Wowza server as is? How much buffering reserve is there on the connection from the live encoder to the wowza server by default? This info would allow us to measure the network and decide on what we need to use additionally.
