If I want to start a webcam platform with multiple cams, is there a module or which module can I use to detect if a stream goes online or offline, so I can save the status to a database? Is something possible or is there a module that can do this?
Take a look at the HTTPUtils api in the Wowza api. Use with caution, http calls are not recommended. It would be best if you not make Wowza wait, make the call and, if necessary, process a response in its own thread. If you must process a response to proceed, that is where things get dicey with http calls.
