Pause button pauses streaming (play button continues stream from paused point)

Hello, i have a problem with the jw player: the pause button stops the sound as it has to be, but when i hit the play button to continue listening the sound continues from the exact point in which was paused. Is a problem because who is listening, by hitting pause button, it stops from hearing "live" content. I would like to know if there is a way to fix this.

In theory you could call setup() again whenever you pause the video.

Do you have a live stream that I could test?

I think you’re better off removing the play button and allowing the user to mute the audio instead of pausing, since pausing will always keep you at the current position. However you seem to be using the iframe embed code, so you don’t have access to the jw player from the context of your page. You could instead setup the player on a page that you control and apply CSS to hide the play button, then iframe embed that page.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
