Hey there i am busy trying to find a way of solving this problem i am having with a Live streaming video..

What happens is after about half an hour or even longer etc the video stream disconnects/ loses connection..

i have tried to build a script that listens for an error and when there is an error reloads the video..

i have got this to work but now i need to make sure that the actual page does not refresh but rather the video element itself ie object reconnects..

the streaming video is viewed mostly in full screen and with my script when it jams it reloads back to normal size video , no fullscreen..

what is needed is that the video can stay its full screen state without any interuptions..

it is a Tv channel stream this is why..

Is it possible to create a function that listens for any error in the video connection and when there is a disconnection,
can the script reestablish the connection without a page reload..

i was thinking maybe onIdle etc..

Any help would be much appreciated..

here is the script i have tried so far..

Note: the OnVideoError is what i am using so far..
