I started to explore multicast network technology and talk about it from previous post. Mostly working with WowzaStreamingEngine, I wish to show principles and milestones configuration there.
We’re familiar with ABR stream playback, where we pick between multiple video bitrates. But what about streams with different audio tracks and different video pictures? Sometimes channel can be switched to different languages or different comments.
There is a myriad of webpages about this question. But here is just my way of look at it. Multicast customization is not too tricky, but I’d like to explain how and why it works.
