In latest Broadcast Live Video solution, channel owners can schedule existing videos to play as live streaming channels. This can be used to simulate a live stream / broadcast from previously recorded videos.
This is based on Wowza Streaming Engine SMIL playlist functionality (requires Wowza Hosting). Plugin includes an editor to easily schedule videos from Video Share VOD in a playlist.
You can create an elaborate schedule with many playlists of videos scheduled to play on each channel:
- For on-demand stream sources, use either 0 or a positive number for thestart parameter. A positive number will start that number of seconds into the video.
- To play the source until the end, use -1 for the length parameter. Any positive value will play the source for that number of seconds.
- To loop through the schedule, set repeat to true. Setting repeat to falsewill shut down the stream after the playlist has finished. Later playlists aren’t loaded unless they start before the non-repeating playlist ends.
- Set the scheduled parameter to start the playlist at a specific time. If the begin time is in the past, each playlist is loaded in order and immediately replaces the previous playlist for the stream.
