I have a livevent for which I want to enable DVR. The event name is liveevent, but when I stream live event it does not show rewind button on player though event plays fine. I am using HDS and this is the URL provided to player http://servername/hds-live/livepkgr/_definst_/liveevent/livestream.f4m
What might be the problem?
My manifest files look like below
<media href="livestream.f4m" bitrate="650"/>
<!-- When enabled, the server will assume that incoming live streams have -->
<!-- timestamps that are based on an absolute clock, such as a SMPTE time -->
<!-- signal contained within the encoder's input source. -->
<!-- Default is false. -->
<!-- Allow take over so that encoders that go down (for some reason) and -->
<!-- and come back up can immediately republish. -->
<!-- When enabled along with AssumeAbsoluteTime, the server will -->
<!-- assume that incoming live streams will always maintain the -->
<!-- timestamps based on an absolute clock across server and stream -->
<!-- restarts. -->
<!-- Default is true. -->
I got it working. I had missed these lines from http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flashmediaserver/devguide/WSd391de4d9c7bd609-52e437a812a3725df a0-8000.html#WS8c0554f47ab8e40d-7ee0c1d6131f3c40b56-8000
"Click Save Manifest and save the file as liveevent.f4m to rootinstall/webroot.
The media player requests this file from a web server. This tutorial saves the file to rootinstall/webroot, but the file can be served from any location on any webserver. This file does not need to live on Flash Media Server. This file can also have any name."
The idea is to have liveevent.f4m file serve livestream.f4m file..its confusing while reading for 1st time...
My liveevent.f4m is like below and is getting served from apache...
<media href="livestream.f4m" bitrate="700"/>
