Sample implementation

.flowplayer { max-width: 30em; } var api = flowplayer('#player', { src: "//edge.flowplayer.org/invalid.m3u8", preload: "auto" }) api.on(flowplayer.events.ERROR, function(ev) { ev.preventDefault() api.setState(flowplayer.states.ERRORED, true) api.emit(flowplayer.message.events.SHOW_MESSAGE, { message: 'Stream offline, reconnecting..'}) setTimeout(function() { api.setState(flowplayer.states.ERRORED, false) // Try again in 3 seconds // normally you should just call api.load() // we change the source for demo purposes to a working stream api.setSrc('//edge.flowplayer.org/bauhaus.m3u8') api.load() }, 3000) })
