A note on LIVE DVR + iOS8 HLS streams. We are aware of an issue related to iOS8+ live streaming that utilizes DVR / seek during live streams. This is an issue that appears to be affecting a few different server solutions, and has been reported on various other industry forums.

 

If you are having challenges with seek / DVR not showing up on live streams in the native Apple player we have 2 options for workarounds:

 

  1. Use ‘start' and ‘end’ query parameters in the stream.
  2. Use a alternate player instead of the native iOS player.

 

Please do still contact cCare as we are using tickets to track updates.
