Hi, I am looking to replace a Quicktime streaming Cluster
with Icecast 2.2.0.
I have a couple questions:
QTSS Supports multicast to multiple relays, does Icecast?
I understand that Icecast creates a Master / slave relationship
so that the following should work:
1) Send content to Master
2) Have the 4 systems in the cluster connect to the master as a slave
What happens if the master goes away?
Using SimpleCast or Nicecast, can I supply
multiple masters incase of failure? Will the slaves switch under a
Does Icecast have built-in load balancing or do I need external app
Finally, QTSS has this feature where the slave will not grab the
content unless a user is connected, does Icecast support something
Thank you so much for your help.
