What is the performance like for audio-only streams?
I would be transcoding MP3 to AAC audio. I typically have many streams each with a relatively small number of listeners. A single edge server can handle hundreds of streams.
I also have some audio-only Wowza origin servers. I imagine in this case, transcoding would take place on these servers?
But, in the case of re-streaming Shoutcast streams does the transcoding typically happen on the edge server?
