  • Real Server Basic

    Has anyone used this free, limited version of Real Network's server? I'm planning on using it for a new audio section of my site, and although it's limited to 25 concurrent streams, it should suffice to begin with.

    Just wondering if anyone has experience with it...

    Hello,

    Get Apple's Quicktime Streaming Server (QTSS). It is free, open source and no stream limits.

    It works on Mac OS X, Darwin, solaris, Linux, FreeBSD, and even windoze

      Ooh, cool - thanks for the linkage!

      It works on RH 6.2, but would it work on RH 7.*?

                Still interested in anyone's experience with either of the two products linked above.

                  My only advice is to run your streaming product on a dedicated box rather than your webserver for obvious reasons

                    Do you mean a machine in addition my dedicated server? Does a stream server put that much pressure on a machine?

                    I'm planning on getting a rackshack server for this, but that's to be budgetted (and financed ), so I was initially planning on hosting it on my server... wrong idea?

                      A rackshack server would be ideal for a streaming server IMVHO loads of bandwidth etc:

                      The reason that I would place the realserver on it's own physical machine is that you will have much more control over the install, open ports, throttling etc etc. Realserver also uses a load of resources <RAM> and used to (maybe still does) have a tendancy to hang on occassion prolly tying up the server.

                      I'll be intrested to hear how you get on

                        Thanks for the input Dave, it's really appreciated I'm not too knowledgeable about these things - content's my area LOL

                        Do you know if the Quicktime server mentioned uses RAM as well?

                        All still in the planning stages of course If I can get some labels to front up some fees as I plan, then it might all go smoothly for once

                          I don't if I'm honest. Ive never used it. Ive heard good things about it in terms of ease of use <server end> and quality of streams but I am put off by the need for quicktime to stream (which is worse than RealPlayer IVHO)
