How to set up a countdown to the start of a live broadcast


You can place a countdown to the start of the live broadcast in the player. To do this you need to create your own custom text element in the builder with the command countdown

And specify the start time of the broadcast in the Text field in UTC format YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss and the GMT time zone. This time must be in the future, otherwise the element will not be displayed in the player. You can also specify the start time in the player code using the countdowntext parameter

var player = new Playerjs({id:"player", file:"//site.com/live.m3u8", countdowntext:"2020-08-15 21:00:00 GMT+01"});

You can change the position, colors, sizes, font etc. in the settings of create element. When the timer runs out, the player will try to start playing.
