Stream video on site 'As Live'

We have a few videos in Cloudflare stream that we would like to play out on our sites ‘as live’. So, that if a user comes to the site, it will be playing out at the same point as everyone else and if they refreshed the page it would continue and not restart the video from the beginning.

If that feature isn’t available, is there an option that when the video auto starts on the site, it can start from a random point in time?

Thanks for any help.

The only way I can think of this working is with the Live Stream product. You’d need an external source playing the video. I’m just not clear on what action gets the video started in the first place.

The only way I can think of is if you generate a random number, then feed it into your own player as currentTime:
