Dear VisCom Community,
Go to http://www.iupui.edu/~nmstream.
In August 2007, my colleagues and I completed a study that examined eight live video streaming technologies in terms of their image quality, streaming quality, accessibility, setup efficiency, and cost. The eight technologies were Clipstream, DVTS, Flash, QuickTime, Real, VLC, VX30 and Windows Media. VLC came to the top of the chart in our study. Thanks to many of you who participated in our survey for the study. For easy and fast access, we have decided to publish the study online. You may find the findings and conclusions from our study immediately applicable to your teaching or production.
What is equally valuable to you is that we created eight tutorials, as byproducts of this study, on how to do live video streaming through each of the eight technologies with the latest approaches. Most of the live streaming software programs mentioned in the tutorials are free or have a free trial version. You will find it convenient to try live streaming by yourself.
Last August, we completed a study on five on-demand video streaming technologies. There are also tutorials for each on-demand technology.
You can find both studies at our updated Website at http://www.iupui.edu/~nmstream.

to me, streaming is a security measure and not much more. I went to a library that had a t3 connection and the streamed video downloaded a little, played a little, then d/l'ed a little more, then played a little...this ruined the whole point of viewing and totally blew.
unless I'm missing something huge, the old way of simply allowing users to d/l still works fine for me because I want my video to play properly and smoothly from beginning to end without stopping a million times.
live streaming? this sounds like it's for the 18% that have a high-speed eliminating the rest of us...
perhaps I should read your study.
