We have been using wowza cloud for livestream for a few events now, and we have used the API to stop and start livestreams.
I have a few wishes/concerns, which it could be cool if a wowza employee could answer
1: Autoplay on the player. Most other livestream services have it. Could it be possible to open for that option. I know it might will cause issues in some browsers.
2: Autoplay when the livestream starts. If I have a livestream that starts at 8, and I start to broadcast a few minutes to 8, then users which have tried to start the livestream at 7:45, gets an error, and have to refresh the whole page. The player should autodetect that the livestream have started, and automatically start viewing.
3: Some API call/changes, require us to contact support for them to take effect. Will this change?
4: When will DVR come?
5: Loop an VOD video until the livestream starts broadcasting, and again autodetection from the player that the broadcast have started.
- Is there a roadmap for future changes for the cloud livestream platform?
