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.
