Webserver Bandwidth

Postby ZeroGravity » Tue Nov 14, 2017 5:09 pm

I am wanting to embed a live webcam on our website. I have successfully tested it using an iframe linked to the webcams IP address/port. The website hosting I will be using charges for bandwidth. If we use Unreal Media Server with the HTML5 player embedding the stream onto the website will this add to the websites bandwidth usage or does it bypass the web server and stream straight to the browser like YouTube does when embedded on a web page.

Don't want to end up with a huge bandwidth charge from the Hosting Company.

Yes, Unreal Media Server will stream directly to the browser, so the bandwidth comes from the location where Unreal Media Server is installed.
