Pause, rewind, etc.. of live video stream

Post by oliver » Mon Aug 28, 2017 4:53 am

I am looking for a way to control the video of a live video stream (from a USB camera) that would allow the user to pause, play, skip forward/backward. Variable playback speed and reverse playback would be nice, too but its not a must.

Is this something that can be accomplished with RVMedia? If so, can you provide any guidance?

Thanks

Oliver

Sorry, I cannot understand how you can skip forward/backward or rewind USB camera stream.
I believe it is possible only for recorded video.

My approach to implement this was to buffer the stream (either to memory or a file) and then playback that buffer.
I haven't been able to find any functions in RVMedia to control the playback of the video file (pause, stop, seek, etc...).
