Version

Stable

1/20/2020

8.27.0

Added

  • Added resume_live_content_at_previous_position_after_ad_break to TweaksConfig to specify whether live content should resume playback at the playback time before the ad break. This is required in order to be able to use AdConfig.replaceContentDuration for live streams. By default live content resumes at the live edge.

Fixed

  • Seeking back to the start of an ad shortly after the ad starts playback when using adaptive streaming ads
  • Missing DASH dependency for Smooth and XML dependency for DASH module
  • EXT-X-START sometimes not being respected when using HLS in Safari
  • CEA Closed Captions not being reactivated after transitioning back from a client-side ad
  • Pixelated content after ad break on HLS + PlayReady
