I have an
.m3u8 URI of type
LIVE. As far as I know, live playlists use a sliding window instead of containing all the segments. My questions are,
1) Is it possible to find out what the length of the window is (time or frame-wise)? My intention is to use the playlist I have to download a live-stream starting from an earlier time.
2) If yes, how do I get the earlier segments, i.e., how do I specify where I want to start downloading from? I tried something like
ffmpeg -ss -00:00:10 -i "in.m3u8" out.mp4, but it did not work.
I do not have much experience in video-encoding or live-streaming, and I would appreciate any direction!
