Pseudo streaming support dropped in flash rendering mode
Our current setup with JW 6 allows us to use primary rendering method as flash, primary streaming method as HLS and secondary streaming method as HTTP.
We use HLS as primary streaming method to have greater flexibility in terms of adaptive bitrate streaming, better buffer control, allowing us to save CDN bandwidth.
We use flash as primary rendering method because HLS is not supported by most of the browsers in HTML5.
Our secondary streaming method is HTTP it suits as a fallback for browsers/devices that do not support HLS.
This setup is working fine.
We now want to migrate to JW 7 but are having an issue due to the fact that pseudo streaming support was dropped in flash rendering mode.
Because of this, users on browsers/devices that do not support HLS, stream via HTTP but can't seek to unloaded parts.
If we switch our primary rendering mode to HTTP we solve this issue but most of the users will not be able to use HLS once it is not supported by most of the browsers in HTML5.
So, if we simply switch our primary rendering mode to HTML5 we will be switching a big part of the streaming used by our clients from HLS to HTTP and this not what we want. This will result in higher CDN consumption.
Anyone has a solution for us?
It will be kindly appreciated.
