HLS Live - DVR - Seek to Current Time


I am trying to find a solution that when a DVR HLS Live stream opens in the player to start to play it from the current time instead of playing from the beginning.

I've researched video node fields, but I couldn't find any setting for this.

seek trickplay field allows to set current position, but in order to set that to right value you need to have the information about current duration of DVR Live stream.


Any suggestions about this?

Did you guys try setting the playStart field before starting the playback?

I've found a solution for this. It can be done by setting playStart = -1 (minus 1).
