Customers who use geo-location lock for Nimble Streamer ask about updating the MaxMind GeoIP database which is used for geo mapping.
You need to download Geo IP database manually and replace the installed one with a new version.
1. You can download the latest country database using the following URL: http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCountry/GeoIP.dat.gz
2. In case of Ubuntu you need to replace /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat file.
For other OSes please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This operation will be fully automatic soon.
Hello. Is this automatic now? (Update geo DB)
I have a viewer in Australia but the server is not detecting his location and he is getting default stream from EU.
This site detects his IP / country correctly.
When I use the test (USA IP address)
$link3 = $balancer->getGeoVideoLink('18.104.22.168', 'rtmp', '/live/stream/', 1935);
Link = rtmp://nyc1.mysite.com:1935/live/stream/
when I change to his Australia IP address, it defaults to UK server.
$link3 = $balancer->getGeoVideoLink('22.214.171.124', 'rtmp', '/live/stream/', 1935);
Link = rtmp://uk.mysite.com:1935/live/stream/
As it's a file which you download manually, you need to update it yourself.
