JW Player, HLS and DVR

Hi all,

I found this post a while ago...

My company have been eagerly awaiting the ability to use DVR with a HLS live stream but with the release of 6.3 it still doesn't seem to have been implemented.

Is there any news on this? I couldn't find a ticket for it but is it on the horizon?

The ticket is here:

We know this issue is much requested, but we have to balance requests for it with other questions. At present, the roadmap for HLS looks roughly like this:

  • AES encryption
  • DVR navigation
  • 608 captioning
  • ID3 cuepoints??
  • Multiple audiotracks??

We are right now working on AES support. DVR should be all completed by the end of Q2.
