Customizing the streaming server in terms of algorithms and core functionality.


I have a questions in regards of how far you can customize the following: Video streaming algorithm/mechanism/system (The way Wowza delivers video frames through the network, the core). For example i want to load my own algorithm for delivering streaming.

I know that is not recommended and it would be silly because of all the money and resources u guys have put on the streaming engine. At some level this mechanism can be a black box for copyright purposes. But for example i want to run a black box test and benchmark the Wowza mechanism with another one without knowing exactly what it does. Only compare results.

It would be nice if you have a guide or some more elaborated and guided info. not just and answer on how to do this.

Best regards.
