1. Web server (for the website).
2. Streaming server (for Real video).
3. Streaming server (for Windows video).
Is this true?
I want to provide both Real and Windows versions of the video (so visitors may choose - according to the player they have installed).
I have heard that Real video will stream from a suitably configured web server. Is there a problem streaming both types of video from the same server?
I hear that the number of simulaneous streams is a deciding factor (i.e. what the server is capable of delivering). I doubt that the site will have more than 20 simiultaneous streams
A host that I am considering provides: 150gb delivery per month for $99 per month.
I am wondering if I can start with the video and site on the same server and transfer if it doesn't work?
Tigger: I'm new to video streaming too. With a bit of luck this thread will get some more experienced WMW help such as Brett's comment.
The company doing the filming and encoding for me want to format the video for 'inteligent streaming' so that it detects and provides video for what ever connection a visitor has i.e. from 28k to 512k.
- Does this work?
- Is it the best way?
