Data transfer reduction when there are no active watchers



Hi! As i am an amateur in streaming I would like to ask you for some advice. I have camera connected to internet connection 200gb per month and ant media server enterprise edition. Streaming works perfectly, but when camera is connected data is sent all the time even when no one is watching. As we have this data transfer limitation could you advice how to turn on camera only when users are watching and when there are no active users reduce data transfer? Step by step guidance would be a blessing!:) thank you in advance!

There is no such feature on server side, but it is a good feature candidate. You could create a github issue in Ant Media Server's github repo about it.
There is stream start/stop and view count REST APIs also.You could do a custom development that manages this.

We have a very similar need for our Ant Media Server.

We used the REST API to create Start and Stop methods.

I'm not sure how you've implemented Ant Media but we have a very simple setup.

1) When a user loads a stream they want to view we send a call to the camera to "wake" the connection up -
