Exceeding max length of 5KB

Setting max buffer

Our system streams live feed. Apparently the delay should be minimal. I setup bufferlength to 0.5 but after a while (few hours) player accumulates buffer of several minutes. In ver.5 I executed

_stream.bufferTimeMax = 3;

in function setStream().

Is it possible to setup this parameter in ver6. HTML5? If not, where in the code should I make the change to alter max buffer?

The only thing you can set in JW6 is the bufferlength for RTMP –

May be it is possible to monitor the amount of data in the buffer and when it surpasses certain value to erase it. My question is what file/function should I look for.

Possibly. I don’t think it will be trivial though. If you want to take a look, the source is here –
