What is video streaming ?
Since the advent of the Internet, it has become possible to do many interactive things, including video streaming. The power of dynamic Internet allows a person to transmit both audio and video at very high speeds; so that things like video streaming and teleconferencing are possible. In essence, video streaming is nothing more than taking a video and audio signal at the source and transmitting it over the Internet. This allows you to send any interactive video stream to any website that can receive dynamic data. The website that shows the video stream must have a special script that can show its video and audio stream.
The most popular type of encoding in video streaming is flash streaming. The biggest advantage of flash transmission is that it can be played in any type of browser. You can easily use Internet Explorer, Firefox Mozilla, Google Chrome or even Opera to play any flash stream regardless of the computer or operating system being used. Here, if the user is using an Apple computer or a classic PC it will not matter and even using Windows or Linux will not make a difference in streaming playback. However, the main problem with flash transmission is the fact that it will use a greater amount of bandwidth and this can make it a problem in terms of bandwidth availability.
The second type of coding mechanism that you can use is Shoutcast transmission. In fact, shoutcast streaming is a very popular streaming method that has been used for more than a decade. It is especially used for audio transmission and for Internet radio stations, as it is an easy and economical form of transmission. The shoutcast transmission encoder actually uses a type of Winamp compatible MP3 encoder, so it can be played on a variety of different platforms, including the Winamp player and the VLC player. Especially, many online radio stations have appeared after the use of the Shoutcast broadcast. However, the main disadvantage of Shoutcast transmission is the fact that especially video signals can be difficult to play in different types of browsers. Therefore, you can end up using different scripts for different browsers and this may not be unnecessarily sensitive for a website that shows video streaming. However, for audio streaming, Shoutcast is still the best option.
Streaming with encoder: The encoders allow you to capture content from your desktop, camera and microphone, among others, and send it to YouTube live to broadcast to all your fans. Live transmissions with encoder are the best option for video game content, in which external audio or video hardware is used, several cameras are used, and so on. More information
