Looking for FOSS video media web server alternatives
I have a circumstance where a customer is intending to change from a Bitband media web server to something they can have far better control over. Below is the circumstance :
windows XP customers (200 npls) making use of WMP11 (or vlc) attaching over 100/ 1000 lan intend to connect to RTSP VOD source. The customer has actually currently invested alot of cash to inscribe hundreds of video clips in mpeg2 TS so making use of flash is not actually the most effective alternative (yet can be done as a last resource if attributes are excellent). The web server would certainly require to have the capacity to stream a whole folder of video clips not simply specific "publishing points" (to make use of a MS term).
To worsen issues, the web servers & customers will certainly remain in a remote area from the customer so physical accessibility will certainly be minimal yet internet accessibility exists.
setting up a RAID1 making use of mdadm for storage space & certainly snmp surveillance.
I've little experience in operation any one of the DLNA web servers to make sure that might also be an alternative. Primarily, completion customer would certainly be watching a page via a stand type setting & picking the video from the food selection for playback. This might include having 10 various customers watching the very same video at the very same time.
It appears the REAL & Darwin web servers are restricted in their result & VLC intends to share specific sources, not a folder. Are their various other media web servers that might function far better or are made use of in a more comprehensive ability (ie : far better assistance area, docs?). What alternatives exist?
