    Novice Streamer

    Iím looking to host a website where Iíll be streaming live video content commonly from peopleís home for paying customers to view. If successful there will be 1000s of these events streaming concurrently with 100s possibly 1000s of people viewing each event all via the website.

    As you can imagine I wonít be go into too much detail but can any of you high light some of the technical issues and constraints Iíll face.

    Thank you in advance

    That's a huge number of simultaneous visitors. I've never worked with anything on that scale (thousands of events to thousands of users). If you're even considering this idea then you've probably thought of the basic considerations like bandwidth and server load.

    To be honest my only advice would be to hire someone who really knows what they are doing. This is a considerable undertaking and you'll need a guru to help you pull it off.

    We'll start off small we'll probably limit the number of views to each live stream be 100, though our ultimate aim is reach the figures mentioned in my earlier post. Isn't this technology used within the porn industry, maybe not to scale i plan to. The BBC was streamlining live football matches during the world cup, though I noticed the picture quality deteriated as the game went on.
