Dash Live looks like DVR/VOD?


We had several Tests with MPEG/Dash

It works really fine, but there is one thing:

All Players we tried showed a slider

either like a VOD File (a slider to shuffle forward)

or, even stranger, like a DVR Stream (a slider to shuffle backward)

The stream to test is

Is there any way to overcome this behaviour?



Hi Robert,

I think that’s just a feature so to speak of some DASH players when presented with a live stream. I just set up a quick test using JWPlayer and your source and this created a player without any scrub bar at all. You could also edit the HTML to not show controls when hosting the player, e.g. using the examples we provide for Shaka Player.
