Request for comment on an advanced functionality:
I need to put overlay banners (images) and other kind of animated swf components on live streaming. Since live streaming has no exact beginning nor duration I need to "push" components during the live by manual click (administrator) or even bound to wall-clock time.
So, I have 1 live stream and (let's say) 300 players watching this with JW player. All players arrive (connect) at similar but different times.
I suppose, I would need to create kind of one to many broadcast component with some rtmp application server (Wowza) to be able to update and turn
on/off the overlays in all the connected players. I woull call this "broadcast component".
Please tell me if you think it is possible to do inside the OVS plugin. I would like to develop this myself.
What do you think is the right sequence of steps to execute?

To put it more simply:
The part of the "broadcast component" is all clear to me.
I am looking for a way (internal API calls in OAS) to load and make overlays appear and disappear when I decide from my "broadcast component" while the live streaming is playing.
Does it exist? Can you point me in right direction please? Thanx
