    Default Two Server Setup: 1 domain hosting and 1 wowza installation server

    hi. we are planning to have a two server setup. we have one existing web hosting that hosts our website. and we are planning to add another dedicated server where we will install wowza.that server's purpose is to be the live streaming server. my question now is, what server takes the bandwidth usage when viewers are viewing the live streaming (we have jwplayer), is it the webhost (server 1) or the wowza installed server (server 2)? ******we are using FMLE as encoder and jwplayer as the video/live stream player.

    It is the Wowza server, bandwidth is consumed between Wowza server and the playback client. The web server serves a player on request to a web browser, then is no longer involved. The player running in the browser is what connects to Wowza to playback a stream.

    it's clear now. thank you for the reply. we are now sure that the wowza server takes the bandwidth consumption if there are users who are viewing our live stream.
