Transmit Video from One Backend Environment to Another


#1

Hello, I have a few questions about the following scenario.

We want to deploy separate isolated (non-scaling) local Licode server environments to our customers. We also want to have our own scalable Licode setup in the cloud. Our customers will connect to, and share video via their local Licode environments. Optionally, we want them to be able to forward their video feeds from their local backend to our Licode cloud server in case they want to share the feed with a wider non-local audience. In doing so, local users would be able to watch on the local feed, and cloud users would be able to watch the cloud feed, at the same time. How can we accomplish such a scenario securely and with the least amount of latency? Also, we would prefer for the backend of the server to split the feed because our primary application and video feed runs on / comes from a mobile device with limited resources.

The obvious answer is to have their local backend create a room on our cloud server, and establish a WebRTC connection to forward the data. Is this even possible? Alternatively, would it be possible to create a room on the cloud server, and route an RTSP feed from the local backend to it? Any suggestions on how to accomplish either of these possible solutions, or is there another technique for doing this that I haven’t thought of? Does Licode support this out of the box, or can I manually extend it to support it somehow?
