  1. #1

    Question switch between playlist and live stream without buffering

    i have a playlist and a live stream
    is it possible to switch between playlist and live stream with out any delay and buffering on client side?

    my goal is to stream a playlist to client and then in middle of playlist any time i want to pause and then start the live stream with out any buffering and delays and then pause the live stream and go back to playlist and resume it without any buffering

    how do i achieve this?

    You can do it easily but the player will treat all the streams in the playlist as a single live stream. They will start the stream from the point it is at when the player starts and won't be able to pause or seek. You get the switching functionality you want by switching the sources in and out of the stream.
