Enter a stream at a specific time

By default, when starting playback, VOD media starts at 0 (MediaPlayer.LIVE_POINT). You can override the default behavior.
  1. Pass a position to MediaPlayer.prepareToPlay .
    TVSDK considers the given position to be the starting point for the asset. No seek operation is required. If the position is not inside the seekable range, TVSDK uses the default position.
    For example:
    long desiredPostion = //TODO : choose a value; 
    @Override 
    public void onStateChanged(MediaPlayer.PlayerState state, MediaPlayerNotification notification) { 
        switch (state) { 
            case INITIALIZED: 
                _mediaPlayer.prepareToPlay(desiredPosition); 
                break; 
                case PREPARING: 
                showBufferingSpinner(); 
                break; 
            ... 
        } 
    }
