How to Setup an Audio/Video Loading Server on VPS

In case you have VPS and you want to stream sound data files or video files -- either. mp4 or. flv -- you will have to set upwards a streaming server. An audio tracks or video loading server offers media data files to anyone who wants to see them on the Internet. Streaming is different from the process known as "progressive downloading" because with streaming, a person viewing your site can skip ahead to any part of a file right away, without having to wait for the whole record to download. (With streaming, there's no buffering, and we all know how buffering can get on a lot of people's nerves. ) Streaming servers also keep your files safe and secure, and they also avoid use up too much bandwidth, either.


If you want to create and music or video streaming server on your VPS, all you have to do is buy and install server software. Streaming Servers There are many brands of this software available, but one of the leading options are Adobe Flash Media,Apple company DSS and Wowza. This can be expensive to buy this software outright--a thousand dollars isn't uncommon--but if you run a little business you will most likely find that you more than make your money again in conditions of attracting new customers through exciting media content. And with a VPS streaming storage space you're able to control all aspects of the information, which is not the case with, say, a shared hosting plan.

Let's use Adobe FMS as an example. In order to install this software on your VPS, simply download what's called a "development license, " a document which will give you step by step instructions through the whole installation process. Thus, the set up is fast and easy. And after getting your audio/video streaming server setup, all you have to do is take those music or video files that you already have and save them in the software folder. Incidentally, you'll need to encode your entire press files. Browsers tend to want to download media files, and not flow those files, unless you have created what are known as "metafiles" for them.

Another option for a streaming server is to rent a VIRTUAL PRIVATE SERVER account from someone who has already set up such a server on that account. This person will have paid the full amount for that streaming storage space, which means this VPS account is sure to be more expensive when compared to a VPS account normally would be.
