So you are saying, time-shifting live video is not possible at this time, or that it requires some kind of hack to make it work? I wish there was a better way to describe what I mean by “time shifting” for google searches. I’m looking for a massive video delay buffer functionality, RTMP pushed in from FMLE and pushed out by the server again using RTMP. I thought that was what the blurb on the Wowza 3 info page said is a feature. Can you imagine the work a person would need to do to handle large numbers of live video streams that they had to run around hitting record, stop, and play for each time zone on earth without screwing up.
Well you called it a hack I didn’t. (smile) I said you could use the API to limit the requested playlist. I don’t think you would need to run around and hit record and stop.
Here’s how I see it would work-- You record the stream. Say you have recorded 9 hours. A request comes in. You determine what time zone the person is in, which will determine how much of the recorded content is available, you use this information to create a playlist request for that time period. That info is presented to that client.
It’s one recording, but you manage the different requests.
BTW, nDVR doesn’t handle rtmp out. It’s HTTP streaming only.
