[This is a mail to multiple lists, please only reply to firstname.lastname@example.org, thanks. (Headers should be set for it).] Dear Mirror-Admin, we are looking for servers around the world for the streaming video service of this years DebConf6 in Mexico, where we will (try to) provide live streaming of the Talks, Workshops and probably various other occurences. For this we need your help, to have enough bandwidth available, as we do not know yet how many people will use this service. Its the first time we do live streaming from a Debian Conference. We will use icecast2 for the streaming, using ogg theora as codecs, streaming in low resolution, and will provide a suitable configuration for Debian systems (packages for sarge plus config files/help), to make providing a streaming mirror as easy as possible. The needed information will be mailed to all participating mirror admins, as soon as we have a final, working and tested configuration available. The technical setup will look similar to the following: We will have one streaming server in Mexico, which will stream to one machine in the net with decent bandwith. From there (it will be named master.video.debconf.org) all servers will get their feed and serve all the clients. The clients will connect to video.debconf.org *or* one of the geographical subdomains, eu.video.debconf.org, us.video.debconf.org, asia.video.debconf.org. We will use DNS RoundRobin to split the load between all participating machines. If you want to help us with your bandwidth please sent the following information to email@example.com: - The IP of the server - How much bandwith you have available - The location of it. - the email-address and the name of the person responsible for installing software on the machine, ie. our contact for the setup - If you are in the US and have a fat pipe: Would you be willing to play the master that serves the other servers? (We have one offer, but thats in .eu, so it would make a bit more sense using on near to Mexico for the master machine. :) ) We only need the streaming servers from may 10th til the 22nd of may, after that the files will be available in multiple resolutions for download at http://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2006/debconf6/ Thank you for your help! -- bye Joerg <lenny> schneidet nie chilis und wascht euch dann _nicht_ die hände und reibt euch dann an der nase. <lenny> uargs, wie das brennt <lenny> hammer. das ist ja schlimmer als die dinger zu essen...
