I would like to let y'all know that I'm a beginner and what I'm sharing with you is just thoughts. So I was thinking of starting my own streaming server which will stream channels to android tv boxes. The streaming flow chart is as follow:
The point is that this guy who will give me the streaming is someone in a foreign country and I don't trust him having any information about my customers. One more thing, he will use me if he knows I'm gonna re-stream his channels. I don't mind but I need to know the effects of streaming from my server on his server so that I can determine a reasonable price. The no of channels is around 500. So now I have some questions here:
(1) What is the effect of server 4 on server 3? Is it gonna increase the traffic on his server or the streaming will be the same as if he is streaming to one of his customer's tv boxes?
(2) Is there any side effects of this long cycle on my customers?
