Our Live Streaming Service takes your RTMP stream and allows you to publish RTMP, RTSP, and HLS streams to the world. You get one stream name with this plan, and streaming is $0.25 per GB monthly. Setup is free. Domain Locking is free. This plan is ideal for schools, churches, governments and businesses that stream regularly but that only have a few cameras or production units. Easy vMix integration, and simple url generation with self managed stream names and security from our control panel.
The Mid Origin Live Streaming Account pulls RTMP streams from your Origin to our Origin, protecting your Origin from large traffic spikes, and of course allowing you to publish RTMP, RTSP, and HLS streams. Ideal for businesses that already have a media server, but with growing scale and global distribution requirements. You will control your Origin, and we will just repeat your streams on our CDN. Setup is free. Domain Locking is free. Recording and Transcoding is not available with this system.
A: Yes. This is a very frequently asked question. Mobile streams out with HLS perfectly from your FMLE, Wirecast, or Tricaster RTMP source. Then simply use our embed generator for desktop flash to mobile switching. The same applies if you are streaming VOD, as long as you follow recommended encoding specifications.
A: You can stream at your multiple bitrates and switch between them with one smil document that matches your bitrates. It's better to use our transcoding system, as you get a stronger source stream, and keyframe alignment, as well as any customizations you want.
A: We hear this all the time. We have several Low-Latency HLS apps tuned for very specific iOS timing requirements, as well as RTMP low-latency chat applications.
A: With our Recording system, live streams are saved on the server: stream live, have it recorded, and as VOD shortly after.
A: We aren't a start-up giving away product to acquire customers. We do have a demo request form. We don't and will never have advertising. Start-up streaming companies change their business model without notice, splashing ads all over your streams. Since we are a business too, we charge money. To be blunt, if your business isn't worth $99 a month for its website, CDN or streaming, the problem lies with you, not us. Using free, or $5 hosting reflects poorly on an organization in our opinion. Choosing proper, scalable hosting means you are prepared to grow.
A: We like to understand our customers, their business, and their abilities. Free demos are a complete waste of everyone's time if there's no possibility for both parties to make money.
A: We don't care. All we ask is that you pay for each month in advance. We earn your business every month, and we don't want you to be locked in to something you don't need.
