Use load balancer as redirector


#1

Hi, I am trying to serve live video channels from different cameras that I have configured on two backend servers that are configured to serve these requests in the format of following URLs. I am trying to use haproxy as a virtual URL like http://virutalIP/livechannelA/playlist.m3u8 and to forward this to real server http://realserverip/livechannelA/playlist.m3u8. Since the videos are bandwidth intensive, I just need simple round-robin redirects from virtual URL to each physical server. There are close to 10 channels on each server. My main concern is that when the video starts, nothing should pass through haproxy. Is this possible to do that with haproxy? Sorry, I am new to haproxy and any help is appreciated
