Notice: Time Shifting to Become Paid Feature

Last updated: 2022-07-07 17:04:31

    We will start charging for use of the time shifting feature starting from 00:00 on June 1, 2022.


    • The time shifting feature is billed according to the total time-shift period. Using the time shifting feature will also incur playback fees, which are charged based on the traffic/bandwidth consumed, live recording fees, and VOD storage fees.
    • Total time-shift period = Total time-shift video length (minutes) x Time-shift days

      • Total time-shift video length: The total length (minutes) of the video files for which time shifting is enabled.
      • Time-shift days: The number of days during which time shifting is allowed. Value range: 1-30.
    • Before using the time shifting feature, you need to enable live recording and VOD storage first. The videos recorded must be in HLS format, and the time-shift days cannot be more than the storage days.
    • Please submit a ticket to enable the time shifting feature. When you no longer need the feature, we recommend you submit a ticket to disable it to avoid incurring unexpected charges.
