I am in the process of building a web application to upload video files to Wowza Media Server and was planning to use Jakarta Commons.HTTPClient to programmatically check for the existence of a file on Wowza Media Server and to warn the client if the filename already exits on the server before a file is allowed to be uploaded to the server. I was thinking of creating a new implementation of com.wowza.wms.http.IHTTPProvider to check the application directory of my Wowza server and send a response code back if a file was or was not there.
Has this ever been done before?
Do you have any code examples?
Is there a different approach you would take?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
