Unified Origin - LIVEΒΆ

The HTTP Smooth Streaming Protocol protocol specifies Live Ingest where the encoder uses HTTP POST to stream the live event to an origin.

Schematically this looks like the following:

       POST        GET
encoder --> origin <-- hds|hls|hss|dash
      (fmp4)  |

The following sections document how to setup Live ingest and playout, the various options. the API as well as how to setup redundacy or live playout control.
