Data URI for Preview Thumbnails with HLS streaming (JWPlayer 6.11)
I'm using JWPlayer 6.11, and trying to display preview thumbnails on the player with both progressive playback (by loading a plain MP4 video) and HLS playback (by using an m3u8 file).
Also, I need to build the contents of the preview thumbnails' VTT file dynamically on the browser side, so I'm using Data URIs. (e.g. "data:text/vtt;...").
Every scenario except the HLS + Data URI VTT is working:
- play an MP4 file, using static VTT file: works ok.
- play an MP4 file, using a DATA URI VTT: works ok.
- HLS streaming, using static VTT file: works ok.
- HLS streaming, using DATA URI VTT: NOT WORKING.
I'm not getting any console error nor js error. No feedback at all from the player.
What can I do to get this working?
I really need HLS streaming and use a data URI VTT.
Here's a test page:
I don't have a license for JWPlayer 7, so I can't know if this is fixed in 7.x.
