We have been using wowza (version 3.x) for few years. Now we have made hw and sw upgrade to Streaming Engine (version 4.x) and at this point we can change our configuration.
We are providing live streaming to many users (700+), that have in-direct access to our server (we are using REST API).
Up to the present, every time user creates "new live stream", we create him new application. Which is very impractical, because we have a lot of applications and administration means a lot of searching.
What is "the right way"?
- One user, each stream new application?
- One user, one application, each stream new stream name?
- One application, each stream new stream name?
Or maybe something else?
We are also using (and providing to our users) transcoding and DVR option.
What would be the best way to go? If you consider administration, monitoring and logging, performance, etc.
