I do low latency streaming with DaCast. In the Encoder settings for each channel, I see 2 URLs – one is a Stream URL and the other is a backup URL.

However, both the URL’s are Exactly the same.

So if the main URL (for whatever reason) fails and I need to use the backup URL, if both are exactly the same (not even one character difference) what is the point of providing such a so-called ‘backup’ URL?

No one has been able to explain this to me. Anyone out there with a satisfactory explanation for a dumbo like me?
