Get the HLS Manifest Details (getManifest())

There is a documented ‘getManifest’ call at PlayerAPI | Bitmovin Player API 8.153.0 but it does not state what it actually returns - just a string - could I use this to try and determine if the stream is Live or VOD ? Is there another API call I could use (I am aware there are external libs like m3u8-parser - npm that might do I as require also). Any thoughts anyone ?

Ah I think I can use the PlayerAPI.isLive() to determine what I require - still interested in what the getManifest would return ?

This call will return the DASH manifest or the HLS multivariant playlist as a string.
Using player.isLive() should be more suitable to your goal
