    Whats with Guaranteed Streams?

    When looking for hosting plans some tell me I can have unlimited streams, then some say only up to 5 or so and finally one is telling me I only get one guaranteed and the concurrent amount depends on how many streams are available at that moment. Can someone explain this to me and is it common?

    Thanks

    I don't know if this is common but I can tell you one thing - in the real world there's no such thing as a guaranteed stream. There are too many things that can go wrong.

    Typically, a server will be able to provide a certain number of streams. This number may be limited by both licencing restrictions on the server software and available bandwidth. There many be a set restriction on how many streams you can have (eg up to five), but there will also be a practical limit on how many the whole server can provide, so you may find that at peak times you can't serve as many streams because others on the same server are maxing it out.
