I'm working on a web app where I use a flash client app to send a live-stream to a wowza server. Is there an exposed method from wowza that allows me to me to check the status of the connection?
The reason I need this is because I have a fixed set of channels that I want available, and any user can stream to any of these channels. So I need to handle the case of 2 users choosing to stream up to the same channel. As I understand, one of them we "acquire" the channel, the other stream wowza will ignore (since the channel would be in use). I use the same flash plugin for both streaming up and down, so I need to know when to force a switch from up-streaming to down-streaming.
Is there a way to do this?
I'm using VideoIO (http://myprojectguide.org/p/flash-videoio/index.html)
On this page:
"The VideoIO application allows you to call any method on the back-end RTMP server using the Flash Player's connected NetConnection object."
I hope someone can help, thanks...
