First question: You published the formula on this page https://www.wowza.com/docs/how-to-configure-apple-hls-packetization-cupertinostreaming for calculating amount of memory for single stream for HLS.
Did you mean every stream for every connected viewer? Or stream from coder to server?
I noticed that streaming with DVR takes more memory.
How to calculate server system requirements for HLS with DVR?
My life example for future broadcast.
How much memory and HDD space I need for 1 day of such broadcasting:
14 incoming streams (480p) – 1 Mbits
14 incoming streams (720p) – 2,5 Mbits
with DVR for 10 hours (every day)
Maximum connections (viewers) – 200
Outgoing protocol – HLS
How much memory is better for these conditions? What about HDD?
