Clustering involves a group of interconnected nodes (origins and edges). A publisher stream is streamed from an origin to one or more edges by the Red5 pro
restreamer. In the context of a Red5 pro ecosystem ,the restreamer itself is a connection. Hence when the simple auth plugin is turned on, the authentication restriction applies to the
restreamer as well. The
red5pro-simple-auth-plugin treats a
restreamerconnection as a special client with the following credentials.
username : cluster-restreamer password: <cluster-password>
The username for the
restreamer is always
cluster-restreamer and the password is the clustering password configured in the cluster configuration file
cluster.xml located at
You can choose authenticate the restreamer in one of the following ways:
- Add the special
restreamercredentials to your authentication data source.
- Implement your own
IAuthenticationValidatoras described earlier and have the implementation verify the
restreamerusername and the
clusterpassword locally (on the server) without connecting to the data source.
