enum PlaylistType (v202105)

Describes the type of the playlist associated with this live stream. This is analagous to the EXT-X-PLAYLIST-TYPE HLS tag. Use PlaylistType.EVENT for streams with the value "#EXT-X-PLAYLIST-TYPE:EVENT" and use PlaylistType.LIVE for streams without the tag.

Enumeration Description
EVENT The playlist is an event, which means that media segments can only be added to the end of the playlist. This allows viewers to scrub back to the beginning of the playlist.
LIVE The playlist is a live stream and there are no restrictions on whether media segments can be removed from the beginning of the playlist.
UNKNOWN The value returned if the actual value is not exposed by the requested API version.
