Timeout conditions

Media Collection API Timeout Conditions

The Media Collection API, being stateless, does not have the same mechanism as the Media SDK for issuing a new Session ID when timeout conditions occur. When a timeout condition occurs, the back end will close the session, and all subsequent calls made with that Session ID will be dropped. The logic that handles a Session Timeout must be handled in the client. That is, the player will have to monitor the timeout conditions, and obtain a new Session ID if a timeout occurs.

  • 10 Minutes: No API Events

    If the back end does not receive any API events it will close the session.

  • 30 Minutes: No Playhead Change

    If the playhead does not move for 30 minutes (e.g., the user hits Pause and walks away), the back end will close the session.

NOTE

You can also force a session end by sending an events request with the sessionEnd event type.
