I’m trying to play a live video, but plays the previous four minutes, it’s not playing live.

I just upgraded from the 3.1.0 to the 4.0.2 library and now it does not actually play live. Before if I could do it.

Sorry for my english

Looking in to this now and it looks like there are 2 types of “live” videos, only 1 of which we (partially) handle currently. These 2 different types are:

  1. A live stream where the available media at both the start and end of the stream is constantly changing (e.g. a CCTV camera that is caching 2 minutes of video)
  2. An “event” stream where the available media is growing at the end of the stream (e.g. streaming the Google I/O keynote)

Currently ExoMedia is only, partially, handling the 2nd case so I’m reviewing what work will be necessary to support both cases but from what I can tell the ExoPlayer really only exposes if the stream is live/dynamic and not which case it is.
