I have an application to which a user publishes live stream . Before publishing stream I need to check if stream already exist . How can I do that ? I used
myStream = Stream.get(streamName)
It always returns true and it looks like it creates a stream if it doesnt exist . How else can I check this ? If stream already exist and if some one replublishes it , stream looks little jittery .
Since this is a live stream, you can't expect hardware persistence but this can be implemented using SharedObject. Design your app that way so that when a user starts publishing a stream, a stream name gets added to a SharedObject so that when a different user tries to publish a stream he/she will know what stream names are currently in use.
