Handling HLS chunks with lower .ts number
So we are live streaming with wowza and completely on HLS at the moment. The issue I am seeing is that when my encoder is disconnected for whatever reason and resumes streaming, it begins the .ts segments at 1 again.
JWplayer when it sees that the segment # is lower than the previous chunks that it was playing will just freeze and continually request chunk lists from the edge server until the # in the chunklist is greater than the last file it played. This means the player, from a users perspective, just sits there frozen for how ever long the encoder was published before going down until the chunk lists catch back up to a higher number.
Is there a way to fix this in JWplayer?
