In my application, I want iPad users to watch video that is originally from an RTSP stream.
The cleanest way to do this on wowza is to start the stream in stream manager, and from there its just a matter of loading the appropriate stream on the client's iPad.
If I only want to start the stream a few seconds before a user attempts a connection I have two choices:
1) start the stream manager. This kinda sucks because now the stream won't die off when the last client leaves.
2) some how start the stream the same way a client request would (meaning it would die off after the last client left)
Anyone have any ideas about how to kickstart a stream with the same behaviour as a client request? This would make my life less hell (one of my clients got excited about our beta product and promptly bought a crap load of iPad 2s!!!)
