One single socket quad-core Xeon with a PCIe x8 based 10Gbps ethernet NIC will be able to deliver that 2.2Gbps easily using either Windows or Linux without breaking a sweat. Of course that's if you have more than 1Gbps of bandwidth - you've limited yourself in this scenario by only having 1Gbps available so that's the wall you'll hit. The complex bit comes ...

Richard Campbell and Greg Hughes host RunAs Radio, a weekly Internet Audio Talk Show for IT Professionals working with Microsoft products. They talked to Jeff Attwood recently about ServerFault.

Well, for cheap software, there's always Skype. Free is cheap, after all.

10TB of quality bandwidth costs a whole lot more than $10/month. Feel free to give a cheapo hosting company a go, but don't be surprised if you get kicked off or throttled after a few days.

Axis does some pretty good products. Camera is controlled by an internal webserver, on which you also follow the feed live. You can have some examples of this webserver by googling "Live view - / - AXIS" (with quotes) or "indexFrame.html axis" (without quotes).

10Tb = 10,485,760MB. Let's assume that you're going to do this over a period of a month, thats 341GB a day, 14GB an hour, 242MB a minute, or 4MB a second. This equates to a 32Mb connection, fully maxed, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Good luck getting that kind of service on a standard highly paid web host, let alone a $10/month host. They would kick you ...

Amazon just added a streaming media service today (Amazon Cloudfront). For the first 10 TB of data, they charge $.17 per GB, and even provide a calculator to estimate your monthly costs. 10TB of data would cost you a mere $1740.82 a month. Are you sure you're looking at 10TB a month? As Farseeker's calculations show, that is a LOOOOT of data to be pushing ...

That looks like a SUN 13W3 connector, you can get adaptors to allow you to connect them to a VGA monitor. Alternatively they are presumably using X11 so you can try something like XMing as a local server for your old machines.

Install the SPICE Guest Tools in your Windows guest. Then shut it down and reconfigure it so that it uses a SPICE channel and QXL video. The corresponding XML is: <controller type='virtio-serial' index='0'> <alias name='virtio-serial0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x05' function='0x0'/> </controller> ...

This is simpler than you think, a 9MB 30-second clip is 300KBps right, you have 15 of them - thus you need to be able to stream 4.5MBps, so roughly 45Mbps. A single 100Mbps link from the server to your classroom should be fine. The webserver, so long as it's not memory-starved, will easily manage to read the files once and cache them thus reducing any ...

At the end, you'll find out that $1,000 for even a two-site video-conferencing solution is really tough to accomplish as you'll spend much $ on hardware/software costs, as well as man-hours to plan, deploy and maintain a feasible solution. Here are some options that might give you a better view of where things are on videoconferencing (per category) - If I ...

Normally, TFT displays have a fixed refresh rate of 60Hz. This problem might be more dependend on the (slow) speed of the integrated graphics device that is too slow to handle this resolution.

Though it's not really a technical podcast, I like Windows Weekly for getting interesting information on upcoming developments on the Windows platform, and it's pretty entertaining IMHO. Have the balance out the dry stuff with some enjoyable shows too..

Microsoft Communications Server is exactly what you are looking for http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/communicationsserver/default.aspx It supports everything you mentioned. We are using it in an environment that is Windows and Macs and the Video chat works on both platforms. We also have offices in other locations and are able to use video chat over ...

Ok, let's work this out. You don't mention what codec or bit-rate you're going to use so I'm going to assume you pick something like H.264 at around 1.5Mbps (as that's what I do for SD content incidentally). So 1.5Mbps works out at around 187.5KBps, multiply this by 60 for 60 seconds in a minute, then by 4 for the average between a 3 and 5 minute clip ...

Let me get this straight. Inputs: Live video (cameras), display messages (advertising), and recorded video, adding titles Outputs: 4-8 video screens. Controlled across the LAN. Right. All of this is possible. There's hardware and software to do it. It's not cheap. There's no open-source / free software alternatives that do all of the things you ...

VLC does not support segmenting the output file. You can try to use directly ffmpeg as it supports output segmentation: ffmpeg -i rtsp://admin:admin@10.1.1.1:554/ch1-s1 -c copy -map 0 -f segment -segment_time 600 -segment_format mp4 "out%03d.mp4"

If your product has value then the people buying it will have to arrange within their organisation to have the necessary permissions. What this means for you is you should be clear about what the requirements are for you to deliver the service.

The Mind of Root Podcast is pretty good. They've been around for awhile (now up to show 98). I've been listening to past shows and usually come away with a couple of ideas or solutions/products I hadn't heard of.

I don't know if your looking to pay for them, but the CBT Nuggets range are excellent videos on a range of windows system administration topics, helped me through my MCSE. They do offer a range of free videos as well as paid for ones.

VLC should be able to do exactly what you want. I'm not familiar with the details but the documentation for streaming: http://www.videolan.org/doc/streaming-howto/en/streaming-howto-en.html describes multiple scenarios including streaming multiple files for VOD: http://www.videolan.org/doc/streaming-howto/en/ch05.html

Go to the monitor's manufacturer site and see if there are any drivers or utilities to use with this device. Install them, and restart the system for good measure.

According to this page you have to add the mime types to the server, in Apache it would be: AddType video/ogg .ogv AddType application/ogg .ogg

VideoLan makes a very good client, and though I haven't used it, it appears to include "a complete streaming server, with extended features (video on demand, on the fly transcoding, ...)" Definitely less turnkey than the above, however, but open-source.

I found a good solution, for very little money: www.vimeo.com. I can purchase a year subscription for $60 and get the privacy options I need. I don't need to install / manage a server which is a plus. And I can embed the videos elsewhere - our intranet, our Web site, etc.
