My problem is that the source and the real encoding of the video are coming from the subject A that is supposed to be a desktop user, since many home user doesn't have the necessary bandwidth to manage a good stream i would like to make a connection between this desktop and a remote server that will provide the real stream URL for the spectators.
I have my little experience with the server world, but i can't define myself as an expert in this field, so i'm asking what protocol or solution is best to re-route a video stream ?
I was making some basic considerations:
- the only protocol that i know that isn't stateless is the RTSP, the HTTP for istance is stateless, both uses TCP.
- i would like to manage other aspects like security and user identification
In any case i'm only caring about the stream between the user-client and the server, i'm not caring about the streaming to the spectators since i'm supposing that the server-guy would do that in his way, i'm just interested about providing the content in real time packed in the best way.
