Custom parameters readout for ngrp stream from Wowza
I am live streaming product trailers and preview videos interrupted by actual live broadcasts all via an ngrp abr stream with streamschedule smil from wowza.
I need two parameters that I can use to show the title and the price of the product that is currently being shown in the stream. One flag (could be 0 or 1) that determines whether the stream is truly live or whether it is a rebroadcast. The second is a simple max 5 digit integer that reveals the product code.
I could even combine these two into one code where I just strip the first character to know whether the current stream is really live or a rebroadcast and the rest then is the product code.
Does anyone know the easiest way to get this variable code into the client side from wowza to jwplayer? I was referred to injecting cuepoints into the stream. I can't get the grasp of how I can get that to work, but it also seems an awful lot of work and a complicated workflow for just one simple integer variable.
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give.
