Need custom java module Start stream on demand through medicaster

This module will look for playback requests for .stream or .sdp files and initiate medicaster/transcoding.

for the stream if not already started.

This may help save resources and money to avoid initiating streams that do not need to be running.

Detailed description of work request:

The Goal is work out this scenario :

I have about 200 streams of MPEGTS in a Multicast , each one defined on a .stream file on the content Folder,

but i can’t add them all to startupStreams, because the server can’t handle all that simultanious,

which is total about 700Mbs of MultiCast data, so we migth need to Publish the MultiCast Data on Demand,

in order to publish only the requested MultiCast Stream at a time , and then realease when user disconect.
