Network loss while watching video

Sep 19, 2011 at 3:16 PM

I noticed the player seems to handle the loss of internet and local network connection differently when watching smooth streaming video.

When the connection to the internet goes down the player will sit in a buffering state until the internet comes back up and then resumes the video.

When the local network connection goes down the player will throw an error when the max number of consecutive chunk downloads has been reached(50 by default).

My question is, is there a way to configure the smooth streaming player to handle the loss of the local network connection the same as it does with loss of internet connection?
