Multi-device MPEG DASH

Hi all,

I did some experiments using the Shaka MPEG DASH player, which lends itself quite nicely to synchronization using the Timing object/Shared Motions.  I used the DashCast streamer to create a looping live stream with a 5 minute or so VOD window.  The demonstration shows one live window and three windows for my user.  The controls allow me to switch between my own navigation and the live one seamlessly.

Note that the audio sounds a bit strange while the system is adjusting, as it’s a screen cast from a single box.  Also notice that even though the files are hosted on localhost, the sync is global.   As I did have issues with encoding audio through DashCast, the audio track is actually a separate audio element on a loop, but it’s of course still synchronized.  The test-picture from does however play very nicely with audio too, but it’s a bit boring to watch.

Regards, Njål
