We have two (or more) IP camera streams ingested by Wowza during a live event. Rather than letting our visitors watch all cameras at once (and significantly stress our servers) we would like to direct the action.
By direct, I mean have a simple/elegant way to switch our output stream between multiple input streams. For example, if our Flash player were connected to show.stream we could on-the-fly switch that connection (via the server) to be the origin stream cam1.stream, cam2.stream, etc. No player disconnects.... completely seemless to the viewer and beyond their control. Just like multi-camera coverage of a sports event on TV.
Is this possible? Simple, complicated, custom add-on module, etc.?
I believe we could use a product like Wirecast as an in-between "Director" and re-encoder but we'd prefer to keep the path from camera to Wowza direct, non-stop.
Any help or suggestions appreciated.
