We are using JWPlayer 8.9.0 and we are trying to insert advertisements in our videos. We are using EXT-X-DISCONTINUITY but apparently, when we get to the point of starting our advertising, the player stops showing a buffer status.

This is an example of our playlist:

Code:
#EXTM3U
#EXT-X-VERSION:3
#EXT-X-MEDIA-SEQUENCE:0
#EXT-X-TARGETDURATION:16
#EXT-X-PLAYLIST-TYPE:VOD
#EXTINF:14.557178,

#EXT-X-ENDLIST
This is what the JS console tells us:

Code:
[log] > audio sampling rate : 48000
9512e6e5-eff6-4f75-806f-a367785315b7:1 [log] > manifest codec:undefined,ADTS data:type:2,sampleingIndex:3[48000Hz],channelConfig:2

While the Chrome Media console says:
Code:
1.414   kPlay   
{}

17.280  kBufferingStateChanged  
{audio_buffering_state: {reason: "DEMUXER_UNDERFLOW", state: "BUFFERING_HAVE_NOTHING"}}

17.280  kBufferingStateChanged  
{,}
pipeline_buffering_state: {for_suspended_start: false, reason: "DEMUXER_UNDERFLOW", state: "BUFFERING_HAVE_NOTHING"}
for_suspended_start: false
reason: "DEMUXER_UNDERFLOW"
state: "BUFFERING_HAVE_NOTHING"
Considering that the two videos that we are going to "merge" in the playlist have the same audio / video characteristics (codecs, bitrate, resolution etc.), why is this not working? Thank you
