HLS live streaming
hi there ... I'm testing HLS streaming on JWPlayer 6 Premium for live streams.
I noticed bufferings that I don't get on devices that support HLS like IPAD or Roku player, using same streams.
I sniffed the traffic and found an strange behaviour for an HLS player.
My .m3u8 manifest has 4 chunks listed, but the player instead of start downloading and playing the first of the list, it starts from the 3rd one (2nd from the end of the list).
As per HLS definition, it should do it from third from the end (as IPAD does). Ideally for my case would be it starts playing from the first chunk of the list, and try to download as many chunks as possible to fill up buffer.
Is there a setting to modify this behaviour?
Are there settings to control buffers of the player, like, how much video before start playing, etc? ...
