How ID3 metadata is extracted in LIVE streaming?

I am trying to perform ad insertion using ID3 metadata and Wowza as can be found in:

In this webinar they do not address the time precision of the ad insertion and I am interested in frame precision. So, I was wondering how JW Player onMeta event works when detecting the ID3 metadata. As the metadata is stored in the header of the HLS chunk, I can get the ID3 before inserting the ad, isn't it? And if so, how can I play tge ad in the correct timecode?

I am still reading the information and maybe you have some tutorials facing this topic. Other question is how to get the timecode of the ID3 metadata. I am thinking in defining it as text to be inserted in the ID3.

The player does not provide any functionality based on frame, but you are able to use time in milliseconds to set up events. I am also not sure about using metadata for ad insertion, as we do not provide built-in functionality for this. Have you checked our support article here:
