[vlc-devel] HTTP Timeshift

I had problems enabling timeshift for HTTP streams. Apparently VLC 
assumes every HTTP stream can be paused and resumed. Unfortunately this 
does not work for live streams.

I've attached a patch which changes two things:
* First, it generally enables timeshift if a stream cannot be paused.
* Second, ACCESS_CAN_PAUSE will return false for HTTP streams without a 
known response length. This seems to be a useful indicator to identify 
live streams.
