Hi there ... I've been testing lately later version of JWPlayer that supports HLS. Considering they only support RTMP, it's nice to see they have a plugin for http streaming.
It has some bugs, but in general it works fine using HLS for live, VOD and extracts of nDVR (Which are treated as VOD)
Which doesn't work is playing an extract of nDVR with a "wowzadvrplayliststart" and without duration ... meaning, providing the option to watch live or rewind to recorded content ... and go back to live. Something that works on OSMF player for instance.
I imagine it's because a manifest for that keeps been a live manifest (no end tag), so it's treated as any live manifest. I'm assuming the pluging should need to have some settings or something that let it know that this live stream can also be rewind.
My question is if Wowza and JWPlayer work together at any level in order to incorporate such feature into the roadmap of the player. I understand it's a pure player thing. Just wondering what could be the best way to get it into their list of features.
Are you guys in contact with LongTailVideo for requirements like this?
