Live Stream via VOD static files and player events
I have a stream set up using the stream schedule.smil example on this site. Everything is working fantastically except for two things:
1 - Wowza refuses to recognize the server time as the time. It only uses GMT as the time zone for the server. Is there an option to configure a time zone change in a config file? I haven't been able to find it through searches.
2 - what does your boss always want? Monetization. We currently have this covered by VAST ads before our actual VOD content. We also have a 24/7 live stream as created with the static VOD files into streamschedule.smil. Is there a event that is triggered when a video stops playing (end of video file) that I can utilize in creating a module that would send the VAST request?
Example: we have video A, video B, and video C. They are in the streamschedule.smil file in order. I want to be able to track the event when video B stops playing so I can send the player information to pull another vast ad, once that ad is done, load and play video C.
