We have 14 streaming servers, each with 24GB ram, monster cpu's and 16X2TB raid-10 mounted HD.
Each servers handles about 3.5k streams. Right now the problem we are facing is that the server are in north america and that we have listeners in europe who are experiencing issues like the video stop and auto-rewind 1 secon behind and then restart. Stream takes about 10 seconds to start and just stop to buffer etc ..
We would really appreciate any hints on path to look at ..
We dont think its only because of the cross-atlantic link.
Our videos are encoded at a 375Kbps/second rate + the 96kbps audio. All of that done using ffmpeg.
