How to change request timeout in the Bitmovin Web Player

When a segment or manifest is not reachable, the player is pending for 20s before canceling the request if no response has been received. In some cases, especially Live use-cases, it is sometimes relevant to reduce the default timeout delay in order to allow the player to retry the request faster or to switch to a backup stream.

How to adjust the request timeout in the player configuration:

var config = {
  tweaks: {
    // set the timeout to 10s
