Thread: Short clips not playing

  1. #1

    Default Short clips not playing

    So we decided to test putting ads in our stream, kinda mini commercials. However, we noticed that they are completely skipped, or only play for a few seconds. These are mp4 files at 16 seconds in length. I have set flowplayer to autobuffer: true and it helped a little. Is there a certain amount of time a clip has to be for the live streams?

    How are you including clips?

    Using the streamschedule.smil file. It's a live stream.

    <video src="mp4:AdSpaceAd.mp4" start="0" length="-1" system-bitrate="512000"/>

    I had start="5" but that was worse.

    Use start = "-2" for live stream. But that is a file.

    The stream that is created is a live stream, but the source can be a file or another live stream. If it is a live stream, use start = "-2"

    When I use start="-2" the preceding video stops, and the commercial never runs.

    Again, start="-2" is to include a live stream.

    AdSpaceAd.mp4 is not a live stream. It is a file. Use start = "0" or some integer greater than zero but less than the length in seconds of the video

    That's what I was doing. I noticed that every other time it plays, it works. The other times I just get a quick blip of it.
