Thank you. I am glad you like the app.
At this time, you cannot fast forward or rewind when doing HLS. The app
kicks off HLS, but you can't get to a point in the future until the
transcode reaches that point. You may be able rewind, but haven't had good
luck with that either.
You should be able to use any client that supports HLS in the market,
however, we have had the best success internally with BS Player
As for it taking too long to start, there should be a fix in place in the
code to help with that. I will try to get a new apk out in the next day or
so as I have some last minute things to add before it is ready.
Eclipse is not required, but I don't have any build scripts in place to
build it outside of eclipse. I will try to add that at some point, but it
hasn't been a priority.
