Optimize Server For Playing FLV (Flash) Videos

Jun 18, 2008

how to optimize a server for playing flash videos?

Here is our website: operationsports.com

In the right menu you'll notice an embedded flash video player.

Often, we receive complaints that our videos are buffering slowly at the beginning causing the movie to stop/pause for a few seconds. After this pause the remainder of the video buffers lightening quick.

I'd like to remove the pause if possible.

The server is a dual processor linux based server dedicated entirely to our video files.

It has plenty of power.

A Server With 100+ HD Videos

Mar 22, 2008

a new dedicated server for a new site we will be launching very soon. We have been weighing our options as far as server configurations and because it is a startup our budget is limited.

But the one thing I wanted to ask about is our primary hard drives. We were going to go with 2x250GB RAID1 SATAII's for their price and reliability. Our total server budget is around $400/mo... so money is tight.

But this site will have about 100-150 High Definition Videos in a certain section (averaging about 200mb each) that are viewed in progressive-download. The daily traffic is about 8,000 uniques and we can't really be sure how many people a day will watch a video, or how many videos they will watch.

With that being said... do you think RAID 1 SATA's are fine? We don't want any problems with people having slow download speeds, since fast transfer speeds are important to us. Or would the SATA's be a problem for sure and you'd recommend faster SCSI drives or RAID 5/10/etc.?? We are not even sure if we can afford faster drives... but if you guys thought SATA's would be a problem.. we'd go back and sharpen our pencils some more.

Server For 4000 Videos 10 Mb Each

Aug 27, 2007

I have a requirement for a server with a need to store 4000 entries each having a 10 mb video clip. No indication of popularity of site as this is a startup. Thats my headache part, normally for such a server would it be advisable using SCSI / SAS and expecting a huge bandwidth requirements? Or should it be done implemented as a cluster?

Dedicated Server For Adult Videos

May 15, 2009

for hosting our adult video projects looking for a suitable dedicated server. Data we have primarily located elsewhere, therefore, regards the site that will serve as a cache.
Then just one HDD and 2 gigabytes of RAM, and virtually any processor, what is most important for us is the connectivity and traffic.

Therefore looking for dedicated server (unmanaged) with the lowest possible price for the most transmission. any specific recommendations?

May 19, 2009

I am thinking about making a web site that streams HD movies and videos that I have created myself. I was wonder could you use Adobe Flash Media Interactive Server 3.5 to do so I know i would have to buy a dedicated server and a fast one with a good load of bandwidth. The big question am asking is that can you base a website or content management system around the interactive server.

Broke Something When Playing Around With Suphp

May 17, 2009

suphp and spent the better part of the day configuring a new server and then upgrading it to suphp in preparation for a migration next week.

However, I broke the links to var/www/html in the process and I don't know at what point it broke to know how to fix it.

I have a couple of links that usually work to this directory:

Both of which now come up to a 404 error from my main site: powermonster.net.

Serving & Playing Breeze FIles

May 15, 2007

Having trouble hosting Macromedia Breeze files on a brand new dedicated 2003 NT box.

Anything I need to adjust?

When someone visits the URL, it loads the presentation main screen, but it's supposed to auto-play several movies and it won't. It works fine locally and on 2 unix servers I tested it on, but not the new NT box.

The weird thing is, if I remote desktop to that server, I can't play that presentation locally or server thru the linux boxes. I figured it was an extensions thing, but like I said the intro still does appear, and if I go to Adobe.com and play a new "Adobe Presenter" presentation - it works fine.

Dedicated Servers And Video Storage And Playing

May 29, 2008

I am trying to find out how many 3 minute videos can be stored on a dedicated server that holds 500GB of Disk Space and how many videos can be viewed at the same time if it has 1500GB of Bandwidth.

We are starting a user-generated site that will potentially receive a lot of videos and someone is trying to persuade us to use a media platform that charges based on views instead of a dedicated server. They are saying the server will not hold many videos nor will large amounts of videos be able to be viewed at the same time.

Apache :: Playing Video On IOS8 Device / HTPasswd?

Dec 5, 2014

I run some tests with an Apache 2.4.10 running on W2k3 Server to see if Videos are playing well. The site is protected with .htacess/.htpasswd for now. I use jwplayer as player. The videos run fine on FF and IE, but as soon as I want to play them on an IOS 8 device (Iphone, Ipad), it doesn't work anymore. The message I get is "File cannot be played". The odd part is - when I remove .htaccess/.htpasswd, it works immediately. IOS devices, or is there something specific to be set to make this work? I logged in to the site with user and password, which always worked flawlessly. I assume it's not an Apache problem, since it runs fine on FF, but maybe someone here is aware of such a bug or something.

Hosting For Videos And Mp3

Streaming FLV Videos

May 30, 2009

I have a website that users can download software (~150 MB).

I currently have a VPS server with Liquidweb.
20 GB RAID protected storage, 384MB dedicated RAM (maximum that can be achieved is 528MB on this package), 200GB Monthly Bandwidth Transfer. I don't use much of the 20GB disk space, but every month I use about 60 GB Bandwidth.

Now I plan on incorporating video files into one of my software packages. Because there will be about 1000 video files (each being about 3-4 MB), that would take up 3-4 GB drive storage; hence, I don't think it's feasible that the users can download the software package. Instead, I can keep the software package size to a minimum and the solution would be to STREAM the videos from within the program.

At this point, I can do one of two things:

1) Keep my VPN for my website and find a hosting provider that has STREAMING services for the videos

2) Upgrade my VPN to a Dedicated Server (Pentium 4 3GHZ Hyperthreaded, 2GB DDR SDRAM, 120GB 7200RPM SATA/8MB Cache, 2000GB Monthly Bandwidth) and have my website and streaming videos on one server.

Also, if I choose option #2, would you recommend upgrading to Dual 120GB SATA / Hardware Raid 1 [add $40/month] or 73GB 10,000RPM SCSI / 8MB Cache [add $60/month]

Again, I just need a server that will play the videos. I will have users that will be simultaneously connecting to the server to watch the videos from within the program so I would like the most stable and seamless choice.

Embedded Videos

Dec 21, 2008

I am no computer genius, but I am trying to learn.

I have a question concerning embedded videos.

When you embed a YouTube video into a web page, does that not use bandwidth of the host of your website?

Again, please forgive my ignorance, I'm trying to learn. From what I've seen on WHT so far, I should be up to speed before too long.

Converting Videos

Nov 29, 2007

I got ffmpeg, mencoder and flvtool2 installed on my server (centos 4) but when I try use them, the size comes off substantially bigger then what I can do on my PC.

For example I've been using Sorenson Squeeze (using Sorenson codec) and say at 240brate(video) and 32 (audio) and at 320-240, it comes to about 100 megs for a 50 min video.

Is there some good strategy on using these free tools effectively? or do the free codecs just can't compare to the paid ones?

What would be the commands that you guys would run to get the best size for those specified options I mentioned? On mencoder and flvtool2 that is. I have the latest versions installed.
