Greetings Wowza Team,
I am contacting you in regards to some issues that we are observing using Wowza 3.6.3 and the nDVR plugin. When using nDVR we are seeing inconsistencies in our Manifest files, specifically the SteramType property. At times the Manifest will report a stream type of DVR and others it will return as recorded. This is happening on a stream with a consistent bitrate and a codec.
Why would we be getting two different types of manifest files from the same application?
Could you please expand on why the manifest file would switch the StreamType and what steps we need to take to ensure we are getting the correct configuration.
