Nimble Advertizer and edge servers

Jehvi 2018-10-25 08:17:22 UTC in Nimble Streamer


I currently have one transcoder server that pulls streams from IP-cameras, then transcoded streams are pushed to one origin server that creates ABR stream and then i have 1-50 edge servers that mirror that origin server to actual viewers.

Now i would like to add pre-roll video into those streams.
Do i have to get license for advertizer for every edge server, or can i do it before edges example just in the origin server?

Pre-rolls are inserted for each viewer individually. Origin is not aware of stream viewers, it has origin servers as "viewers". Thus you need advertizer license for each of your edge servers.
Certainly if you would need only mid-rolls, you could add it on origin server, but for pre-rolls it's impossible.
