get live buffer


The api call: jwplayer().getBuffer() always returns 0 when the player plays live HLS streams.
Is there a way of getting the amount of seconds buffered on a live HLS stream?

Hi there,

As per our JavaScript API documentation the HLS buffer is only exposed for on-demand (VOD) streams, not live. There is no other method for retrieving the current amount of buffer stored for a live stream.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
