    Question Playlist duration query using DVR's UTC-based request

    Hi,
    I'm trying to make a timeshift app, and I have set the playlist request delegate to UTC-based request.
    I don't have any problem with that, but I have a small question about the wowzadvrplaylistduration query.
    It's possible to omit the wowzadvrplaylistduration query parameter, so the playlist will start at wowzadvrplayliststart value and won't end (infinite duration)?

    Thanks !

    Hi,

    If you don't specify an end-time then the following logic is applied:

    For a live store (one that's currently recording), the playlist presented to the player is a live playlist.
    For a recorded store (one that isn't recording), the playlist presented to the player is a recorded playlist, using the end-time of the recording.
    I'm not sure if that answers your question. The end-time for a stream that is live is obviously different (as in it doesn't exist) compared to a stream that isn't live and so has an actual end-date. DVR treats streams differently depending on if they are live or not.
