    Default RTMP starttime/duration JW Player

    Hi, I'm looking for a way to set starttime and possibly duration if I can with rtmp via jwplayer. Previously we were using a custom flash player and just used netsteam.connect("<server>"); netsream.play("<file>","<starttime in seconds>") ; and that worked great. I can't seem to find a way to do that with jwplayer though...seems like this should be very simple no? I even tried to do it with an smil file like this: <video begin="30" dur="40" src="...">. Shouldn't this just be a flashvar? this is driving me nuts...

    I can do just what I need with http using this: http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....HTTP-streaming Is there a way I can do that with RTMP?

    I contacted jw player support and they told me to refer to wowza support about "Pseudo Streaming". I have the startparam for jwplayer set to "start". is that the correct startparam? do we have to change something on our wowza instance to make this work?

    You could construct a module that could handle start/duration parameters via the play event handler. You might checkout the following post as a good starting point.

    i'll see if this helps...it seems like a major oversight that this was not included in jwplayer...

    thanks for the response.
