Automatic failover for live streaming
Using 3 to 4+ fragmented ingest streams, embedded with VITC (SMPTE) timecode. Buffer at the AMS server, for several seconds (this should be configurable, to allow for extra time when satellite and terrestrial internet redundancy are utilized). Then analyze the 3+ streams for similarity, both video and audio would be cool. When the stream that is being pushed out to clients, differs greatly from the others, automatically switch over. It would also be nice to be able to get notifications, not necessarily to the encoders themselves, but maybe and configurable https endpoint.
This is now under review by the Streaming team. Thank you for your feedback.
