How does Wowza Streaming Engine determine the value for minBufferTime in the MPEG-DASH manifest? In all my tests so far it appears that this value is hard-coded to 6 seconds. Is this value configurable?
I am trying to reduce end-to-end latency. If my understanding is correct, the size of the buffer at the player is influenced by the value of minBufferTime from the manifest. I have already configured mpegdashChunkDurationTarget=1000 and mpegdashPlaylistChunkCount=3. I have keyframes every 1 second. But end-to-end latency is still closer to 6 seconds.
I have flagged our Senior Engineer on this. This property is currently hard-coded and cannot be configured. I have submitted this as a feature request to our Backlog for a future release. However, I do not have a timeframe as to when it would become available. Do check in periodically in our
Software Updates page to see when this feature is implemented.
