Disabling the Live Scrubber

Use the following steps to disable the live scrubber for a VisualOn integration app.

Warning:

As of April 1, 2016 the Ooyala Android SDKs have been shipping with Google ExoPlayer libraries instead of the VisualOn libraries. While there are steps that you will need to take, moving to ExoPlayer will provide a more consistent, higher quality HLS and MPEG-DASH playback experience for VOD and live streams on Android devices.

As of August 1, 2016, Ooyala will no longer support the HLS player integration with VisualOn or provide bug fixes or improvements specific to VisualOn libraries.

In order to upgrade, you will need to
  1. Open the project main activity file for editing.
  2. Find each instance of getShowLiveControls(true) or getShowLiveControls() and replace each with:
    getShowLiveControls(false)
