I have been wondering if there is a term for a playback feature that allows for the player to work on files that are time shifted and playing on the fly? Of course the Channels DVR playback software does this, but my two other players that I use, Plex and Kodi doesn't have the functionality.
Kodi will play back the video files that are still recording but once it gets to the time line when the file was started, you can no longer fast forward or pause. The file will play past the end time when the file was loaded, but ONLY if you let it play.
Plex player has even further limitations. It just stops at the end time. If you load a file that ChannelsDVR is still recording, it has no idea the file is still "growing" and will just stop at the end time it showed when you load the video file.
I would like to put in a feature request to both Kodi and Plex developers. However, I don't know what to call it! Is there a term I can use to make describing this feature easier.
Also, I am curious if any other players are able to playback active recordings, and are able to pause, skip forward and back like the Channels software is able to do?
