We have installed 10 Wowza servers, where 2 of them are used as Origin servers, and the 8 others are used as Edge servers.
Our use case in live streaming to approximetly 5k concurrent users in 1080p, so we would like all of the users to access the Edge servers and not to the Origin directly.
We are open to suggestions regarding the player we can use, but we want to choose our best options regarding the following matters:
1. We want each user accessing a video through a player to have an ABR ability, using ngrp and not SMIL (because most of the third party players don't support SMIL). How should it be configured using Edge?
2. What is the best way to get load balancing between all of the end users? we would like them to access some kind of DNS LB name (as the player "video source"), and then it'll redirect each user to a different Edge server.
3. when setting up an Edge server, I saw that when the primary origin is unavialable, it dosen't fallbacks automaticaly to the secondary, altough it is online and configured correctly. what could be the reason?
