I am new to Wowza, testing the capabilities.
I followed the instructions of the post "How to re-stream video from an IP camera (RTSP/RTP re-streaming)"
and I will use the Microsoft Smooth Streaming or/and the ADOBE HDS.
My question has to do with the behavior of the incoming RSTP streams.
Can we control the already defined stream in server (or even to create it on-fly ), programmatically ?
to start the streaming when we want and to disconnect when we don't need it any more ?
In our system, we have few seconds(2-3) before the user actually starts the player. We need low latency <= 1 sec, during the streaming.
We have locations with a number of cameras and we should connect them , based on the incident or by the frequency of recent history.
So, using a web service to control the streams/channels in the server , is the best solution in terms of resources optimization.
