Broadcast video over internet

Hello,

I was just wondering about the possibilities of broadcasting the videos archived from VSM in internet. Have anybody done this before??

Regards

Re: Broadcast video over internet

I wouldn't recommend trying to place a VSMS server directly on the internet.  I would set up a server in a DMZ that has access to pull video from the VSMS server and then hand that off to clients on the Internet.

Something on the cheap might be a Linux virtual machine with VLC pulling the video from the VSMS server, transcoding it, and then allowing clients to pull it via HTTP.  I've messed around with this scenerio a little to see that it works but haven't put anything into production.  I don't know how VLC handles lots of simultaneous HTTP requests so I don't know how scaleable this is.

VLC even lets you display a video feed from a Linux command line in ASCII art. (vlc rtsp://x.x.x.x/live/proxy_name)

Have fun,

Andrew
