I mean for flash pseudo streaming (since it works in html 5) and not rtmp. Can this be done in a middleware in swift or something else?

If by "pseudo-streaming" you mean where the client makes a GET request with parameter ?start=<N> where N is in seconds, then Swift doesn't support that. Swift treats objects as opaque byte strings; converting a time-based offset to a byte-based offset requires knowledge of the structure of the object.

There's no reason you couldn't write a middleware to do it, though.

That is what i'm talking about. And i knew that it wasn't available. Just asking how(if) it could be done. Thanks
