Video Whisper. com/ Wowza plan requirements (beginner)
any opinions of this developer?
I am using wordpress/videowhisper live streaming plugin and want to give users the option of broadcasting live. After wowza config on my end will users basically be able to broadcast their channel with the click of a button?
And how much will my wowza hosting plan be for a couple hundred users compared to a few thousand?
In response to your second question, There is no limit to how many concurrent users Wowza allows. The limiting factor is usually bandwidth.
With a 1g nic (20% overhead accounted for.) = 800mbs throughput, which is 800 1 mbs streams, or 1600 500kbs streams.
You can use this formula for calculating:
number of users * stream bitrate + 20% IP overhead = total server bandwidth
You will have to test your actual server/network using the load test tool, or monitoring utilization in production. You must be properly tuned. And to achieve maximum levels you may have to tune your server and network in other ways outside Wowza.
NOTE: Java can saturate up to 5 gigs per instance.
