    looking for Audio+Video Streaming Server host

    my prospect is looking into developing a AV streaming site that will allow his students to access all his lectured financial planning classes online.
    only paid students will be allowed access a members page that they can view his private member page with AV resources online..

    any hoster here that can support AV streaming and how much the cost for it?? I'm looking for a rough range figure so that the my client will know wat sort of budget he is dealing with...

    if you do host av streaming, please give some web url of these kinda site do that i can testout the speed involved...

    hope to get some quality hoster to reply on this...

    May consider to conduct lecture online where all the student can participate from home and at the same time record down the lecture for future reference. We can help you to maintain real time interaction with your student even they are not attending your class physically by using Microsoft LiveMeeting.

    How can we do that, try out our webinar on your selected topic here for real time experience on how LiveMeeting works.

    its really depend on what type of Audio/Video format that your server support... preferrably AVI/WMF/MP3/Flash base....
    as long as the user can view the classes video then it should be fine....

    i guess the issue is more to bandwidth issue than the video format..

    thats alot of thing for the lecturer to take care off if its a live real time streaming... not to mention that our streamyx line sucks everywhere... it could be a major let down for the students at home...

    further more the location of the classes are not fixed.. it might be held in small group at the customer office or some rented place all over malaysia...
    its hard to bring along so much it equipment around....

    my customer wanted just a simple solution by bringing a cam+stand to the training room and record it... the students then have the option of refresh itself of the classes or those missed it can still view it online via his site..

    u know lah... those lecturer and the students are professional ppl like financial planners, insurance agents, bankers, lawyers, accountants, etc are not tech savvy so we propose a simple solutions like what youtube have so that they all can access the contents easily...

    perhaps you got any other medium to be contacted?

    Are you sure you want streaming video like YouTube? I think it makes sense on YouTube because people will be 'channel surfing', so you can start/stop downloads very quickly. You mention Streamyx, which is what I thought of when I first saw your original post. Who would stay awake in a lecture where the lecturer kept pausing for a minute every few seconds?

    Maybe you're over-complicating the problem. If the material is meant as a back-up to facetime, could it be simpler to provide an email or ticket-based download for the media? Piracy isn't a problem for anyone but Sony, Disney and Time Warner. They're the only ones who can realistically afford to enforce it. Everyone else should be building their businesses around piracy. There are plenty of tools that can be used to capture streaming video in common formats, nothing escapes a video cam, and since RecordMyDesktop, you don't even need the cam. Just tell your prospect that his media will be copied and he has to live with it - it'll save you hassle in the long run.

    I was thinking not so much along ladycooper's lines (live lectures), but of giving the media away, or at least reducing the sign up fees, and charging for interactive course work. What I had in mind was kind of multiple choice stuff, but slightly different questions for each user, and with an explanation of why the right answer is right, why the wrong answers are wrong. Like the BBC News 'newsquiz':
    BBC NEWS | Special Reports | Weekly world news quiz
    or maybe even little 'microtutorial' videos that are keyed to right and wrong answers.

    I'm changing my mind as I go along... we should have tea and biscuits with this... how about, rather than streaming video, interactive courseware based on simple interactions with web pages and keyed video microtutorials? Possibly ought to be a better way to learn too - there's a huge danger in talking for (I forget now) anything over about 30 seconds, as the listener will 'fill up'.

    Anyway, I had better stop typing. It's more than 30 seconds, and you might have stopped reading already!

    normally for Audio/Video streaming site, you need the Dedicated Server.. Dedicated Server provides you more server resources to host these kind of site.

    most shared hosting package have the limitation on the bandwidth and CPU resources. Audio/Video streaming might take up a high CPU resources usage.

    Furthermore if you have many students that needs to view the videos together.. this require a high CPU usage.
