I'm using Wowza to record streams coming from webcams (HDFVR) and looking for a way to add more than one server to handle all the requests.
Outgoing is not a problem since I'm moving the videos to Amazon S3 and using MediaCache to serve them.
I tried setting up the Load Balancer add-on from Wowza but with no luck, HDFVR wouldn't redirect my requests to edge servers.
I'm wondering if I can use a software load balancer such as HAProxy to redirect requests? I don't know much about the RTMP protocol and I'm not sure if it will try to send data chunks to one IP or to all my servers in a random order.
If anyone has some experience setting up something like this, help would be much appreciated. Thanks
