we are currently setting up our streaming project (24/7 web tv with dj live shows) with wowza on ec2.
now we need a little help when it comes to generating the playlists.
we have the followoing scenario:
* our client will build up playlists in a custom application (wordpress extension)
* the playlist contains vod files and live streams and the typical meta data (title, start time, length etc.)
* a periodic cron job will request the playlist from the wp application and gets the playlist for the current day as JSON data
* now, we want to write a wowza plugin that merges the playlist data in our SMIL schedule on wowza.
the question: is it possible to integrate the JSON data in the active SMIL playlist without disconnecting the stream that plays the playlist?
we want our users to watch the 24/7 stream without having to reload or reconnect after we updated the playlist.
thanks in advance for your help!
