I have a question about stream fallback functionality.
At this moment for testing purposes I have one main RTMP stream and one additional RTMP stream as backup. I set second RTMP stream as fallback. I am receiving main stream on VLC.

It happens that main stream is stopped in VLC, and I have to pull stream again in VLC and then backup stream starts to be visible. It is possible that I don`t understand correctly whole concept. Is it idea if main stream is stopped (failed) that backup (fallback) stream take over without interruption?
