Thread: nDVR Not starting at Live

  1. #1

    Default nDVR Not starting at Live

    I am pushing 3 streams (same content different bit rates) into a WOWZA EC2 Streaming Engine 4 Server. I have nDVR enabled, and I have a smile file combining all three streams for playback with my JW Player Enterprise Ads player.

    I am having an issue with getting the player to start at the current LIVE point. It usually loads 3 to 5 minutes behind live.

    Is there a reason for this? Simple fix? Need more info?

    Thanks in advance!

    Did you configure your Wowza nDVR addon according to the "How to set up and run Wowza nDVR for live streaming" form article?
    What id the DVR window duration setting you are using? Using a large window duration setting will generate a large DVR descriptor file containing all the information for the DVR chunks for the entire window. Some player might find it difficult to read such a large descriptor file.
