Re: Streaming Video Server
Another suggestion, though I don't know how ready for production level it
is, is www.nullsoft.com/nsv/
several internet-TV stations have popped up using this, and I've seen
pretty good performance from it. It uses the same server layout as
Shoutcast (relaying servers and such) and in fact, uses the standard
Shoutcast servers to send. the encoders have a very..rustic feel to them,
but they work with a bit of tweeking..
As far as bandwidth, a 240x160x15fps video stream can be compressed down to
about 120kbit, and a 320x240x25fps stream down to 250-300kbit, the latter
giving rather decent video quality..
Hope this helps!
