Problems with the streaming of files from the folder

Sorry my English. I'm Use Google Translate.
Hello. I use UMS to broadcast home IP-TV channel
the stream is taken from the folder with the files of the format MKV.
When the server restarts, playback starts again from the first file in the folder.
How to make the server remember the position when the server is restarted
and playback began with the last file played?

Здравствуйте. Я использую UMS для потоковой трансляции домашнего IP-TV телеканала
поток берется из папки с файлами формата MKV .
При перезагрузке сервера воспроизведение начинается снова с первого файла в папке.
Как сделать так, чтобы сервер запоминал позицию при перезагрузке сервера
и воспроизведение начиналось с последнего проигранного файла?

Hello,

You cannot do that; but the real question is - why do you need to restart the server? The server can work for months without restarting.

Yes. The server can work for months without rebooting ...
But if it is an industrial server ...
And I have only a small home server for 16 subscribers

As I understand it, you did not foresee the possibility of reproducing on the last file ...
And also there is no possibility of launching an arbitrary file from the playlist ...
This is a big minus. Unfortunately...

Да. Сервер может работать месяцами без перезагрузки ...
Но если это промышленный сервер ...
А у меня только маленький домашний сервер на 16 подписчиков

Насколько я понимаю, вы не предусмотрели возможность воспроизведения на последнем файле ...
А также нет возможности запуска произвольного файла из плейлиста ...
Это большой минус. К несчастью...

It's not clear how exactly you are broadcasting these items. What player are you using? What streaming protocol?
Are you using MPEG2-TS broadcasting?

And also there is no possibility of launching an arbitrary file from the playlist

Did you try using "live playlist" type of live broadcast? When you use live playlist, you can specify which file is playing at any time.

Understood but there is nothing really you can do to solve your problem.
You should NOT restart the server.

One weird thing that you could do - when you restart the server, and you want to start from specific file, move all previous files out from that folder.
Ugly but can work for you.

Удачи!

Hello
Tell me, are the developers planning to add in the new version the ability to restore the playback of the stream from the playlist, after rebooting the server, from the last played file?
And also add the ability to run an arbitrary file from the playlist?

No such plans.

About the ability to run an arbitrary file from the playlist - you can add a file individually and set it as active item and it will play.
