or as I like to call it - how does MLS get it to look so good?
ok, I am using WMS 3.0.3
I use FMLE to stream live HS soccer
640x480, frame rate 29.97 VP6
If I set the kb at 1 MB, it looks great but users get CONSTANT buffering.
So I have to lower it to 800 to not get buffering complaints.
VOD is not much better, actually the quality is worse than live. The fuile that gets recorded to the server is usually much worse than live, so its a continual process of broadcast live, re-edit from tape, push a new file to the server.
I would prefer to have a good quality live file and a good quality VOD file.
I have 2 Mp up available to stream live, sometimes 3.
I am only sending one stream.
On a dedicated server that runs a few very small low traffic websites (mostly WordPress), 2 installations of Shoutcast, and WMS.
Dual Xeon 5620 / 24GB RAM / 4 x 1TB
16 CPUS Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5620 @ 2.40GHz
1Gb dedicated port
WHM 11.34.0 CENTOS 5.8 x86_64
My load averages are:
Load Averages: 0.03 0.05 0.00
When I had WMS 3.0 installed/upgraded I did have Performance Tuning done.
So why isn't my server pushing the video out at a better rate?
Would love to watch non-blurry soccer.
