Differentiating between Live and VOD Stream

Tue Oct 30, 2018 2:17 am

I am using following Live Video: http://roku.dittytv.com/smil:DittyTV.smil/playllist.m3u8


Content-Meta-Data, has a property called Live, This property is optional.
videoPlayer.content.Live


Is there a way to identify or differentiate between live and VOD videos?

Length. VOD sets Length.
Live would set length as 0, or even leave it invalid and then use the live flag to change the "0m" to "LIVE" to display to the user in the video player if you don't want "0m" showing and the progress bar looking silly as it expands offscreen.
