Using two different FMLE encoders for a live backup workflow
Hi, how to configure Wowza to automatically ingest a backup live rtmp stream using a secondary FMLE Encoder on the same Live HLS/cupertino configuration? This is a possible scenario: I have two live encoders on two different machines. The primary encoder freezes because an hardware error, the wowza livestreaming automatically ingest the backup stream without almost any client issue.
In this case the backup live stream would be the looped schedule stream (in place of the usual mp4 looped file), and the primary live stream would be the actual live source. The primary would always override the secondary, then when the primary goes away, the secondary will take over and the stream name would stay the same.
and add the backup live stream to the scheduled play list. That would be Stream1 in the scheduler (you can rename that if you like). Then add that stream name to the loopUntilLiveOutputStreams property. When you send in the backup stream, that will stream constantly until you start the primary stream.
The primary stream should take over and continue to stream. Then when the primary stream goes away for some reason, the secondary stream will be switched in.
