    Hi everyone,
    I have a question. Is it possible to relay or pull stream from one web call server rtmp to another web call server rtmp ? Has anyone done it before on web call server ?

    Hello
    RTMP pooling is not currently supported.
    However you can push a stream from one WCS server to another WCS server over RTMP.
    Here you can read about push API:
    Article about RTMP re-publishing to Youtube and Facebook
    https://flashphoner.com/broadcast-video-stream-from-web-page-to-facebook-and-youtube-simultaneously/
    Re-publishing case on our website:

    Testing

    HI Max,
    Yes i did read on webrtc re-publishing to rtmp. Just wondering if there's another way to do it so that we could republish multi bitrate video. Since its going through webrtc, it will be pushing just a single bitrate video to that rtmp server.
    I hope one day wcs could have and support this feature. Thanks for the reply mate! That helps a lot.
    Cheers

    We have RTMP pooling feature in our roadmap.
    I will inform you if we have any news about this.

    As an option you can try to pool WCS stream over RTSP.
    So if one WCS server has a publishing stream 'stream1', the stream is shared over RTSP: rtsp://host:554/stream1
    Therefore you can pool this RTSP url from another WCS server.
