I’ve built a custom module to redirect requests for an inactive live stream to a “standby” stream, which is essentially a server-side Stream instance playing a local file indefinitely. The standby stream will continue to play/loop until the “real” live stream comes online (i.e. starts publishing).
So far, it works well with RTMP publishing tools (I’ve tested Wirecast against it), but one of my clients is using Cisco TCS and TelePresence Server which publishes to external Wowza servers using RTSP, not RTMP. However, I can’t seem to detect the name of this published stream from the TCS, and even though an RTMP request to play the stream as named in the TelePresence config works, I can’t seem to find a match for the stream name in server-side Wowza code. When I look at the ApplicationInstance.getPublishStreamNames(), I see an empty item as the first element of the array (e.g. [, …]). How do I get the name or unique ID of an RTSP stream (or RTSP stream masquerading as an RTMP stream)?
Many thanks in advance…
