First of all, hello everyone, as this is my first post.
I've got very simple requirement. I want to play a number of files as one stream.
I tried the following method:
with my streamschedule.smil file:
I play my stream in the following way using my live app (myApp1):
<playlist name="my_playlist" playOnStream="test_playlist" repeat="false" scheduled="2013-01-01 16:00:00">
<video src="mp4:vid_1.mp4" start="0" length="30"/>
<video src="mp4:vid_2.mp4" start="0" length="40"/>
<video src="mp4:vid_3.mp4" start="0" length="20"/>
Everything works fine, apart from the fact that scrubbing is not available when I play the stream of 3 files, and when I want to play the stream again I need to restart the server or use ModuleScheduleClient.
Second approach I tried to achieve the same functionality I used the method described below:
But I am not sure if I can use the same .smil file as above if yes then my question is how to achieve that?
Secondly I tried to stick midroll, that worked fine, but there is a sentence which is not quite clear to me:
How can I play any number of streams? Can I specify more video clips in "stream:" field?
You could play any number of streams whole or in part as one stream
Thank you for any help in advance.
