Due to running into many restrictions behind firewalls we are thinking of changing over to stream via HTTP to see if that alleviates the problems.

Is there a downside to changing to HTTP (speed?). Also it seems some servers have the ability to detect/restrict a "streaming" connection. Would this still be detected by changing to HTTP?

No. It's the same. The only difference is - your server CPU usage is slightly higher, since all media streams marshal through IIS.
But you only start to feel it when you have 25-50 concurent streams, otherwise the ovehead is invisible.

Install UHttpProxy on the server machine.
