Understanding Fast Reconnect

Fast Reconnect minimizes the impact to each client during a temporary network outage by enabling the client to reconnect to the server automatically and restart streaming. If the client was connected to an on-demand publishing point, the client restarts playback at the point at which the connection was lost by synchronizing itself with the content timeline. If the content includes video, the client estimates the approximate video frame at which the connection was lost. If the content is indexed, this estimate is more accurate. If the client is connected to a broadcast publishing point, the client reconnects to the broadcast in progress. Depending on the content, the user may experience a gap in the broadcast.

The following are some key details about the Fast Reconnect feature:
