Is there any way to switch multiple streams on server side?


I’m working on live streaming project and it has to provide multiple(up to 3) streams per a game and they can be switched in main view.

Currently I’m loading every streams when the administrator change the stream but it’s showing loading screen every time which is unfamiliar to users.

Is there any way to switch the streams on server instantly so that users wouldn’t see loading screen on their side?

They don’t want to watch the loading screen indeed.


Hi @Luke Stanley, you can do this by writing a plug-in for Wowza Streaming Engine. You can see part of how it works in the Stream Publisher plug-in here:

There are also several companies/developers who sell a turnkey stream-switch module.
