External RTMP live stream to be re-streamed for LAN distribution
Hope you can help.
I have had a good look on the forum to check if I have missed something but anyway...
I have a swf flash file that when opened in a standalone flash player plays out a live stream of a feed from the internet and the swf also contains some other content that I want displayed wrapped around the feed.This works fine.
I want to be able to stream this swf file to a multitude of PC's on the internal LAN instead of them all calling the feed from the internet individually.
I downloaded Wowza and Wirecast.
I hoped to be able to load up the swf into Wirecast and them broadcast to Wowza media server where the LAN PC's could all pick up the stream from but Wirecast doesn't seem to have this option to insert the swf.
I also have the option to pull in the rtmp external feed direct for distribution to the LAN but cannot see a way in Wowza to simply add this live RTMP stream somewhere to then re-stream as RTMP again.
I have a constraint that the PC's need to run a swf file to play the content and attempts using VLC failed as Flash (on the PC's) and VLC Streaming Server wouldn't work together ( I tried RTSP and HTTP external to VLC for re-stream also). Another constraint is Bandwidth , hence the live streaming server in the middle to feed the LAN.
Thanks for reading and apologies if this is covered already. Maybe I missed something in the tutorials?
