Thread: HTTP streaming / start from any second

    Question HTTP streaming / start from any second

    Hello and good time of day.

    Is there any way to implement youtube-like feature to start from any moment in http video-on-demand mode?
    There is no way to use rtmp in some cases.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Eliont, if I'M not mistaken , for http playback iphone directly open its native player , ipad can play video on custom html5 player, also mac too.
    This problem can be solved with javascript.

    function seekTo(evt) { = theSeekTime;"loadeddata", seekTo); /*loaded data is media event of Mozilla, */
    var theSeekTime = whatSecondsYouWannaSeek ; //int
    if ((navigator.userAgent.indexOf('iPhone') != -1) || (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('iPod') != -1) || (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('iPad') != -1)) {

    this.addEventListener("loadeddata", seekTo);

    this.currentTime = theSeekTime ;
    I wish it will help you.

    Thanks, but i need to get it works not only on tablets.

    Something like:
    Skip the first ten seconds:
    Seeking to any moment of vod with http.

    iOS link works on android tablets too, but not on desktop.
    'Other' link using 'rtsp' instead of http.

    Please take a look at the "How to specify a play start time and duration for HTTP streaming" forum article.
    I think that using this you can achieve your desired workflow.
