 +If a URL is live online video (such as a sports event or a webcam) or live online audio (such as online radio), then you can select the **Live stream** checkbox to tell Mezzmo that this URL is a live stream. ​  
 +Mezzmo treats live streams differently to normal URLs and files - specifically when it comes to transcoding. ​ Normally, Mezzmo will cache a transcoded file and use it when the URL or file is played again. ​ However, for live streams, Mezzmo does not cache the transcoded file or URL so that it is always the most recent content from the web.
