Playlist With Both Live And VoD Streams

Post by Be4stElectrjc »

Have these 2 types of stream in the same playlist, so how should i upload it in your software? For example now i have it in External Playlist section, but VoD don't work. May i need to do two different uploads with the same list in 2 different sections like My Playlist for live streams and My Videos for VoD streams?

Playlist is in M3U format anf of course it works with all players.

You must use type attribute with video value as descirbed here or here for VoDs

Structure of the link:

...type=m3u&output=mpegts

Structure of the file:

#EXTM3U
(#EXTINF:-1, Name of the Channel
Link)
() until the end

All the streams have -1, though VoD have a duration. I don't use the M3U file directly (downloaded now only to see how it is organized) because i use the link to it in order to auto-update the list every time. Should i add type="video" to each VoD i have you say? Have 5000+ channels between live and VoD streams, i don't think this can be practical in my case plus, as i specify in this message, don't use the file directly for update reasons... What if i do like this:

1) Delete my link from External Playlist section
2) Add my link to My Playlist, this way only live streams should work
3) Add my link to My Videos, this way only VoD should work
4) Keep these 2 sections, even if they share the same link

There is no other way "to say" the app that your links are VoDs in external playlists. The app cannot understand it itself as "m3u8" is general HLS-format, usually used for live-streams in internet.
You cannot "add your link" to "My Playlist" or "My Videos" sections as these sections aren't considered for the link to playlists but only for links to direct streams.
