I wrote a plugin that converts timecode from a FMLE source into timed ID3 tags which works with Wowza Streaming Engine, however when setting it up to passthru from Wowza Streaming Engine to Wowza Cloud (for scaling) the ID3 tags written by plugin seem to be stripped out. Is it possible to make this work? Or do I need to use Amazon EC2 for scaling in this case?
At this time, you are not able to send ID3 tags through the Wowza Streaming Cloud. We already have a backlog request (160111) logged for this feature request. I do not have a timeframe to provide you for implementation for ID3 Tags at this time.
Depending on the number of viewers you anticipate, you could scale this with an edge server in the meantime and perhaps utilize the load balancer to add additional servers if you find it necessary.
