Stream Fallback functionality

Hi,
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. When I stop main stream, if I understand correctly, fallback (backup) stream should take over without interruption on VLC. But this does not happened. 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?

Hello, Villiam.
That's correct. You have to reload player as stream became interrupted or switched on the fallback source. (Though it mainly depends on a player's resume algorithm, not Nimble.)
To get seamless switching, you can use Transcoder in hot-swap mode as described in the following documentation page:https://blog.wmspanel.com/2017/04/streams-failover-hot-swap-live-transcoder.html
Thank you.
