How do I tell if a stream is still live or is archived?

The URLs for a live stream and its archive are identical. For example, you can not tell if http://vod.akamaihd.net/sport_h264_1500k@1390 is live or archived simply by inspection. Once you play it, however, the class will dispatch an IS_LIVE_STREAM event. Its data property is true if the stream is live and false if it is not. Also, a live stream will start by default at the live point (the “end”), and an archive will start at time 0 (the “beginning”). If the status changes while you are playing back the stream, the event will be issued again allowing you to adjust your player UI.
