setup DVR for an existing ABR stream

Hi, I love the new DVR function. I was waiting on it for a long time.
Good job!
I read the release notes, that is it possible to setup DVR for an ABR stream.
Now I have setup a DVR rule with an ABR application name and stream name. But maybe it is the wrong way.
I have no output yet.

let assume you have ABR stream name

To open dvr abr stream you just need to change your url to

and if you setup your streams recording you will get your streams playable from dvr archive

all Right,
So I add 3 DVR rules for the 3 different video quality.
DVR path must be the same for all streams of the ABR? or better separated from each other?

We recommend using 1 recording path per stream.

Hi Alex,
just adding _dvr doesn't work.
I can play each dvr stream and the abr, but just changing the abr url in the webplayer to playlist_dvr.m3u8 or playlist_dvr.mpd won't work for me.

Could you please send details to ? We need stream URL to check it.
