Content Security: Streaming is inherently more secure than PD since streaming allows only a small amount of the video in memory at any given time. SecureToken, RTMPE and other content security methodologies available in Wowza further enhance content security.
Security is not a big issue for us. And to be honest: It is not possible to secure the videos. Everybody can grab the videos easily with a screen grabber.
Bandwidth Savings: Streaming is throttled so that less bandwidth is used for videos that are abandoned (viewer does not watch the whole video). The amount of savings can vary widely depending upon abandonment habits, seek habits, replay, content duration, etc...
You can also control bandwitdh with pseudo streaming, for example with the amount of buffering set in the nginx config or with the bandwidth switcher of jw player
Viewer Experience: Seek experience, jumping ahead/back on longer video (anything more than 5-7 minutes), is greatly enhanced.
There is no difference between pseudo streaming and real streaming in my opinion for this. Have you ever had issuses with this while watching a YouTube-video? They use pseudo streaming as well.
Paid Content: business models such as pay per minute are much easier implemented with streaming.
This ist not relevant for us.
Live Video/Chat/Recording: all require streaming.
This ist not important for us.
I understand that "real" streaming has its advantages - therefore I would like to stay for some tasks still with streaming. But pseudo streaming has its advantages as well, especially with mobile devices.
Therefore I would like to repeat my wish: Please enhance Wowza with a pseudo streamer so I can use whatever I want without the need for maintaining two server infrastructures.
