A/V Streaming

[ #18035 ]

I haven't done much with streaming A/V since I was at DEC, and Real Networks was the only game in town. But, I have a client who wants to be able to provide his clients the ability to stream. The RealServer (or Helix, or whatever it's called today) seems somewhat expensive.. but has a free encoder for users. Then, there is the Darwin Streaming Server, which is free... but I'm not sure what he'd tell users to use to encode. Windows Media is not an option.

What are opinions?

Loading... please wait.
  • VLC [videolan.org] has video streaming, the player just needs to have the proper codec. Hey, it's OpenSource and free. Beats the fuck out of Real and about anything else.
  • Still waiting for theora [theora.org] to get done.
  • Nullsoft video?
  • These seem a little underdone so far. I found gnump3d [gnu.org]. Could be easy for a client to just make MP3s. But, I couldn't find what video formats it supports and it seems like it's Apache::MP3.. something that streams, but not really a streaming server for more corporate use.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far, I can keep them in the queue for R&D.
