Questions about streaming many files

Postby leaters311 » Sat Jun 16, 2012 6:44 pm

Hello UMS staff and forum users,

I have a few questions about streaming many (hundreds) files using UMS:

1) Can I create 5 different channels, all randomly playing a list of hundreds of videos each in their own folders? If yes, is there a playlist size limit?

2) Can I add a logo or a scroller or something like that to videos?

For purpose of answering these question, please assume that ALL of those files are already encoded in 1.2 mbps H.264 format.

Thank you in advance for your help.

1) What do you mean by "channel"? So that everybody watches the same channel? This is possible in multicast mode.
In unicast every playlist is per viewer.
So create 5 virtual folders and put any number of files there, no limit. That's all you need to do.

2) You can play these files with Flash player and you can add logo on the player - refer to our SDK examples.

Hi admin, thank you for your reply. It was very helpful.

To better explain my question:

I have 5 "channels" (like TV channels):

A1Music TV
A2Music TV
A3Music TV
...

Each has their own folder: /a1musictv, /a2musictv, /a3musictv, ... with hundreds of clips each, all encoded identically, with same dimensions (SD or HD-720).

The output of each signal will be delivered to a delivery system (like UStream, LiveStream, etc.) to distribute the signal to the masses.

My question: can UMS make this happen? Can it handle putting together 5 different streams like the setup above?

Thank you very much!

UMS is a streaming server, not a content publishing system.
