    Default How to record a section of video from client side

    I have a live stream that is being recorded and I have iOS clients that can go back and play like a DVR.

    I would like to record from the location of the video that is paused on the client for a duration of 15 seconds. Can someone tell me how would I go about doing this using the Wowza API?

    Thanks
    Bob

    Just to clarify, it sounds like you are recording a live stream to files and playing those back on your iOS clients
    and then you need to create clips from a particular position?
    There really isn't an API to facilitate this workflow.
    You'd basically need to create the clips from the files you already have, using something like ffmpeg,
    with the start point and duration you require.
    This would really need to be done client and webserver side, though client side
    on iOS would be difficult without an app.

    Yes, you are right about the workflow. But I figured out that you can do it with nDVR where you want to start and stop the stream.

    The only issue I have now is how to tell the stream to go to that position/location based on UTC.

    Can you tell me what is the input for seek? is it based on frame count? what is it based on?

    stream.getPlayer().seek(startFrame);

    Hi,
    So that we can go into and understand your workflow in more detail, would you please open a ticket about this, by emailing support@wowza.com.
    In that email please reference this thread and the other thread that you have that seems related, this thread?
    Try to describe your workflow, or proposed workflow, in as much detail as possible.
