This file describes the various components of the Litestream MP3 Streaming
System.
Litestream Server
Litestream Server is the streaming server. It connects to a
streaming source on one end and replicates that stream to clients
on the other end.
source --> Litestream Server --> clients
Literestream Server
Literestream Server is the mirroring server. It connects to a
streaming server on one end and replicates that stream to clients
(possibly other mirroring servers> on the other end.
Litestream Server --> Literestream Server --> clients
The Literestream Server is the way to scale Litestream. It allows
you to use few network resources between broadcast centers while
maintaining good quality to your listeners. For example, I could
set up broadcast centers in Australia, Europe, and the US, all
connected with Literestream Servers. Australian listeners would
connect to their local server instead of connecting to the one in
the US, preventing network saturation.
Litestream Streaming Source
Litestream Streaming Source is a simple, non-reencoding streaming
source which streams a playlist to the streaming server. It's an
easy way to source a stream unattended.
