Liverepeater live-edge live-origin who's broadcasting?


I can’t understand from documentation, which of live-origin or live-edge broadcast when live-edge recieved a request. I mean I request content by URL which directs me to live-edge, then on live-edge there configured live-origin (or several origins) server which contains our content. And I can’t understand live-origin or live-edge gets load from users. Can I have weak edge server for requests?

Thank you!

Maybe what you don’t understand is that an edge server pulls streams from an origin, which knows nothing of the edge until then.

To pull various origin streams, use .stream files.

Stepping through this guide might help understand:


The edge servers are the ones serving up the client load. They request a single stream from the origin when the first client request for that stream comes in.
