html5 streaming range request and MS Edge


MS edge will start the stream, but won't seek or resume after pause. Streaming via range request works fine in firefox and chrome. Is there anything special required for range requests server side? My videos are served via a server side script file handler. Here is an example stream you can use in the JW Player Stream Tester...

Hi William,

Our player does not specifically support those types of streams so the ability to play them in JW Player would rely on the browser’s native support for them. If you take the URL of your stream and access it directly into Edge, so you wouldn’t be using our player for playback, you will see that the content will not seek. Doing the same test in Chrome or Firefox works fine, as you have said. This means that the behavior you are seeing is due to limitations within Edge itself.

Thank you.
