Starting playout even if browser tab has changed

Oct 13, 2011 at 1:09 PM

Hi, I am having issues with playout not starting if I change the browser tab window before the playout has started buffering (the URL has been fetched). It is first when I switch back the browser tab to the player the player requests the URL and starts playing. This causes issues since we use tickets that expire after X seconds to protect video URL. Can I force the playout even if the browser window changes? One guess is that the player has its own session, but I will post a separat question regarding this.

Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Andreas
