I need to use several servers for a live stream. The audience will need to
be spread over approx. 5 WMS machines.
The encoder can only send one stream out (due to bandwidth restraints).
My idea was to send the stream to 1 origin server via encoder "push". Then
the edge servers will do a "remote publishing point" and retrieve from the
This worked well in my test however the edge servers need to be "started"
each time the origin server gets a new live stream. I need this to be
automatic. When the encoder starts a push, the origin server is live. I
need the edge servers to become live when the origin server is live.
