I'm looking for any way to control the playback time for live sessions. I need to know the timeline position since the stream started to be published. It will be useful to control the interactive content.
It seems to be easy to implement for ondemand sessions due to timeline, but I'm without any idea about hot to do it for live sessions.
Let's consider that, during a transmission, the presenter say something related to a spreadsheet and then launch a component to show the spreadsheet image for the audience. Due to buffering and other application or network delays, I need to synchronize the video being shown with the moment when the image will appear in audience screen. Otherwise the image may appear too much time after or before the video moment and the presentation loss its sense.
I think that, if I know the playing timestamp since the video started to be published, will be possible to create a synchronization algorithmic to solve this issue. This timestamp must be related to video being played in the client player. I don't think that the cuepoint/metadata option will be available for all devices and players.
