The following section is from the tutorial and explains me how to do it:
To add RTMP redirection functionality to the Load Balancer, configure the load-balancing system, and then add the following module to the Application.xml file for any live or VOD application on the Load Balancer.
Be sure to add it "after" the last <Module> that's included in the <Modules> section in Application.xml. The following example shows an RTMP redirection module named redirect:
This module returns an RTMP redirect to clients that connect to the Load Balancer, except for those that are configured to be ignored in the loadbalanceIgnoreClients property in the Server.xml file. Wowza edge servers that connect to a Load Balancer that's also an origin server in a live stream repeater (origin/edge) configuration are also ignored.
What i didnt understand is, in the older LoadBalancer 2 configuration is totally different than LB4 configuration?
do i have to create a redirect folder in the application and also in the conf with the Application.xml like in LB2 and every other app ? Or do i just have to add the Module to my own wowza live application?
<Modules> section in Application.xml. The following example shows an RTMP redirection module named redirect: <Module>
i can not understand the manual from that sheet. i tried every combination and i ended up in errors or the jw player just done nothing.
and finally some critics to you guys (please dont get it personally):
Also what i found really frustrating that the Wowza Loadbalancer Server are unregistering themselfes permanently every ~30 seconds ?. I am using the dev licenese but its really anoying to restart the LB Servers als the time because you guys limited it too hard. this is not a good way to develop. What is the problem to give the devs 15 minutes? no one will steal or abuse your pogramm because of it. And if some wants to crack the time limit i am pretty sure people will do.:mad:
Some Flash players have limited support for RTMP redirect. In the newer JW Player versions, the support for RTMP redirect has been removed
We are currently looking into an RTMP XML redirect mechanism issue that should work with JWPlayer. Currently a fix is being tested and as soon as it's validated it will be included in the LoadBalancer4 package.
Also we are also working on improving the Load Balancer documentation.
I agree with you. The 30 seconds time interval limitation is too small and I will pass your remarks to our product management team to increase this time limit to a more usable time interval.
