    Default Apple HLS Live Stream no counter.

    Hello I am finding that during a live streaming event that I don't get a video counter in HLS but I do with rtmp. Is this a limitation of HLS for live streaming events? I am working on getting a ad solution working for non-flash devices. iOS based devices. I know I will not get ads for every device out there but I would really like to get it working on HLS.

    With Flowplayer and JW Player video works great just no counting up on my iOS devices. On PC's with Flash when using RTMP link to the video works fine and the counter counts up. If I use the HLS link to the video JW Player pushes it though flash player but the counter stays at 00:00

    Here is a Link with JW Player 6.2 as the Video Player

    Hi
    Currently pre-roll is only supported using RTMP.
    There is a workaround for iOS but it's done on the client side,

    Jason,

    Is there a reason why HLS the player counter does not count up from 00:00?

    Is there anything that does support Mid-roll ads?

    I must be one of the few that live stream 24/7 with WOWZA

    Mike,

    If JW player does not get duration in the metadata event it is treated as a live stream. Usually does not have a seek bar in that case, either. You must be forcing the seek bar in the configuration. Not sure why the counter works in the rtmp live and not the HLS version, it would be a question for JW Player forum.

    Thanks Richard,

    I have three Channels that are open to the "public" and trying to have them work like "TV" Pre-Roll and Mid-Roll ads is quite a challenge. Driven by a Ad Solution like google or others. I have contacted there support group and am waiting on a answer.

    Thanks again guys...

    Mike
