How do I start the stream at a predetermined point?

By supplying an optional seek parameter to the stream name. This seek parameter can either specify the entry point in seconds relative to the start of the stream, or it can be the string live to indicate that you wish to join a live stream at the live point. Examples:

  • http://vod.akamaihd.net/sport_h264_1500k@13903?seek=120 starts play two minutes in.
  • http://vod.akamaihd.net/sport_h264_1500k@13903?seek=432.127 starts play 432.127 seconds in.
  • http://vod.akamaihd.net/sport_h264_1500k@13903?seek=live starts at live point in the event.
