You need to find out which media format your customer wants to use and
then pick the best streaming server for that format.

Our customers have diffrent needs so we bill both pr/mb and used
bandwidth. Usually as hosting provider you pay for the total amount
of bandwidth. Streaming can be very very bandwidth extensive so you
should proberly try to find out how many concurrent users your
customer wants to support and if its adult content keep and eye on
your logs and bandwidth usage ;-)
