I'm working on a web app where I use a flash client app to send a live-stream to a wowza server. Is there an exposed method from wowza that allows me to me to check the status of the connection?
The reason I need this is because I have a fixed set of channels that I want available, and any user can stream to any of these channels. So I need to handle the case of 2 users choosing to stream up to the same channel. As I understand, one of them we "acquire" the channel, the other stream wowza will ignore (since the channel would be in use). I use the same flash plugin for both streaming up and down, so I need to know when to force a switch from up-streaming to down-streaming.
It's not exactly clear what your requirements are, but there are many approaches to limiting publishing. Can you describe in more detail what you would like to happen? Are you trying to prevent two streams of the same name to the same application? Or just trying to limit the number of streams a user can publish?
