Hi,

I'm currently trying to develop a HLS client script that will try and choose the best edge server instead of having a server side script decide on what edge the client should connect.

In order to do that, I would need for each client to know the current status of an edge by querying it. There's the '/manage/server_status' request URL that gives the appropriate informations, but it's behind a management password. Is there a way we could make that endpoint public by an option? I don't want to give the management password to the clients since they can do other things like delete DVR archive with that token.

Also, is it possible to have the Management API use the SSL certificate ? Because I won't be able to make the clients call the API if it's mixed content.

hi,
it's bad idea as any viewer can control your server not only check statistics. you have to implement load balancing in this or similar way http://blog.wmspanel.com/2015/02/hls-dash-media-streaming-load-balancing.html
