VLCHello, For RTMP streaming, we usually advise using jwplayer. Because in this case where you used VLC for RTMP playback, it seemed that this is a VLC bug in RTMP playback. I’ve tried using a different source (not being hosted by EMS) to check the usualy RTMP behavior for playback of VODs. But it is also displaying the same behavior with what you’ve encountered.
