Introduction

The Live Offline plugin enables overriding player error handlers to allow for reconnection with a custom message and display colorbars as a background.

This is useful when live streams are yet to go live and let the user manually re-attempt connection or auto connect.

For Live HLS , some servers like Ant Media Server support ENDLIST tags. When the encoder stops, this helps determine ending of streams to display an end screen. With a config reconnectOnEndStream, reconnection is possible which will end determined by a connect cycle time config endTimeCount.

Using the video.js middleware stream resolver api. A pseudo random round robin load balancer and fallback for edge source selection is possible.

A TV noise animation option can be used for offline reconnection mode.

A custom configurable message can display useful offline messages.
