Thread: Destroy Stream Definition

    Default Destroy Stream Definition

    Hi all,

    I am a bit confused by the stream 'destroy' definition. What is it really? From what I have read, Wowza automatically destroys any stream which is not in use. This is where I am confused because what if I have 2000 people listening to my audio stream and then at night they all go to sleep and I have no listeners. Would the stream be 'destroyed' at that point until the first listener comes back in the morning?

    In unicast streaming there is one stream for every client, each of which is destroyed when the client disconnects. When that happens to one outgoing stream it does not affect others.

    Thanks Richard. So does that mean for each 'close' by a client, the log should show a 'destroy' as well?

    There should be, unless you pull the plug on the server suddenly.
