NEED HELP finding the right module for creating playlist based streams!
We have very specific requirements and are looking to see if there are any existing modules that will suit them.
We need to be able to create a stream that will continuously play the same list of MP3 files (like a playlist). We looked at the
StreamPublisher module, but we need to have separate SMIL files for every stream we want to create, so that changing one will not require that ALL other streams need to be restarted. We need a separate SMIL for every stream we want to create.
The user would use a backend system (we already have) to pick the files and order in which they will play and then the SMIL file would be created and somehow the matching stream needs to be restarted.
And why don't you want to create a new application for each station? Each application can use its own SMIL. But if on the same application, to edit each stream's playlist, it will need to edit part of the same file which is practically illogical and could be disastrous if edited incorrectly.
The best option would be to use a separate application for each station.
you can ignore that line if you wish to use only mp4 video files. no live content. If you wish to include live stream(s) too in the playlist, then the streams already must be present and live (running). Adding inactive streams won't work.
