Wowza liverepeater from CDN as RTMP and output Multicast to clients
I am investigating the options of using Wowza in order to support the following scenario:
CDN RTMP live stream (input) --> Wowza using LiveRepeater --> Multicast (output) to clients
I have been able to successfully pull in the live Flash RTMP stream from the CDN with LiveRepeater able to connect to Wowza from a Flash player. I am now trying to figure how to output the stream as multicast to the clients. I briefly read about MulticastPublisher which sounds like may be an option but wasn't sure if I could use both LiveRepeater and MulitcastPublisher together.
I am also wondering what type of client the user would need to use to receive the multicast stream (Windows desktop). Is it possible to use a Flash player or possible a Adobe Flex client? If not what other options do I have for example Quicktime or RealPlayer.
Thanks for any help you can provide. I am really impressed with the Wowza server especially with it being written in Java and the great extendablity it has.
