I have successfully used Live-repeater origin/edge, I applied it in an internal network using three live channels.
The problem that I have a bandwidth limitation, so I tried lowering the video bitrate but I got a bad quality. So I have to switch between channels usage, but the problem is that when I stream the first channel then close it, it does not close the connection between the origin and the edge, what happens is that the edge is still pulling the stream from the origin.
So my question is, Should I search for any plugin that would apply the required functionality, or is it originally supported in Wowza?
Another questions, I am using a commercial license and in order to activate the license, the servers should be connected to the internet, Is there is any other technique for activation rather than connecting to activation server? As I was opposed by our security engineer, and he did not agree to expose our servers to the internet to minimize the threats and attacks.
