    Default #EXT-X-ENDLIST this tag is not appended to playlist.m3u8 ?

    Hi team ,
    #EXT-X-ENDLIST this tag has to be appended to live hls stream playlist.m3u8 file when stream is ended from wowza side , but then i don't see this tag being appended .
    Observed behaviour : so the player keeps on requesting for the next chunk seq number even if stream is ended .
    Expected : as soon as stream is ended from wowza side append this tag to playlist.m3u8 file there by player will natively fire event.ended event

    Do i need to do any changes in wowza config to get this behaviour , let me know if i am missing something .

    Thanks in advance .

    We do not have a way to do this for live streams. It is something that we may add in a future release, but no time frame at the moment.

    Hi there,

    I was looking at using the IHTTPStreamerCupertinoLivePacketizerDataHandler2 outlined in the tutorial to add this tag when I end my live stream so that the client side player knows to stop requesting chunks.

    Do you think this would be a viable option?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Tom,

    This may be possible. However, it should not be necessary as Wowza removes the stream when it ends.
