Ticket #1634 (closed enhancement: fixed)
HLS: jump to N-1 for live streams instead of 1
|Reported by:||jeroen||Owned by:||courtenay|
Currently, the HLS provider starts playback on the first segment, even for live streams. This presents two problems:
- With a DVR window of 2 hours, the live stream is always 2 hours behind.
- Given drift issues around segment durations, the provider may fall outside the stream window to end up in a state of endless buffering.
We should fix 1 by jumping to e.g. N-1, 2 by looking into possible drift issues (which are already mitigated b/c of the fix to 1).
