Server side playlist support
Ability to stream a collection of on demand files from a live smooth streaming publishing point. Adding a comment describing scenarios that you would like to see supported here would be very valuable.
Server side playlist for live smooth streaming similar to WMS would be a great feature. We are building large system for education events and we would like to use smooth streaming live as a virtual channels that can accomodate lives and vods according to programm editor requests. It would be fantastic if possible to change dynamically playlist while user is watching.
We would like to see the WMS broadcast playlist available in smooth streaming with the advertising and no skip policies embedded.
We want to simulate 24x7 internet TV channel. Besides on demand files we also need LIVE smooth streaming sources to be supported in server side playlist. Something like:
live-source1 (switch to live source at 6:45pm, duration 15 minutes)
live-source2 (switch to live source at 8:00pm, duration 5 minutes)
We want to simulate a movie channel, by creating a playlist of VOD movies.
