Description

Hi,

I suggest to add support in the MUX configuration of an IPTV input for supporting alternative inputs.

For example, in the URL at time you can have the value "udp://224.0.0.1:1234"

And the suggestion is add support for "udp://224.0.0.1:1234;udp://224.0.0.2:1234"
Then, if the first stream goes zero (no data over a timeout) the read method changes to the second address.

You agree?

Hi,

No one interested on this?

The idea is quite simple: If first stream (with more quality) goes down, then the stream is get from the second in the list. And when the first comes, the input changes to it. Obviously, both streams have the same MPEG-TS, only changing the bitrate.

Good idea, right?

Hi,

It's this difficult to implement?
