I can help you with the required functionality and build a module that easily can be added to your Wowza configuration. Contact me on Skype (ID: karelboek) or email to discuss this further.

Kind Regards,

I have send you an e-mail about this. I would be able to develop this for you. Based on your username I think we are in the same timezone (I am based in the Netherlands), this will make cooperating a lot easier. Looking forward to hearing from you.
