Question regarding webcam streaming and bandwidth

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hi,

A friend of mine wants to set up a 24/7 webcam at his venue that will broadcast a feed over his 1.5mbps T1 connection to a website (located in a remote server elsewhere). Users would go on the website which is on its own server, and watch the feed from the site. This would be a basic media player embedded on a webpage which uses the streaming computer's IP as the source/address for the video.

Now, my question is(if I explained the above portion clearly), if multiple users connect to view the stream, which internet connection is being stressed, the webserver's or the camera server's? 

Regards,

David Browne

I have read your problem, The answer to your solution is that whoever wants to view the feeds of the live telecast can view it, but the stress will be on the web server an not in the camera server, because the camera will record everything and will be delivering it to the server. The more the people on the server the more the bandwidth gets reduced in the server. there might be a lot of buffering in the streaming. So the main problem will happen in the server and not in the camera. I hope that solves your problem and all the issues related to it. Thanks

Hi and good day! The answer is, the web server will be stressed out because it simply uploads the information to each viewer, simple uploading of information will take up bandwidth and a lot of uploads will cause the internet to slow down.
