How to create and architecture an open-source and/or free video platform ?

How to create and architecture an open-source and/or free video platform ? | benhmidan | Scoop.it

This post is the result of a sort of challenge. The objective is to create an architecture to generate, manage and deliver HTTP streaming videos using free and/or open-source tools and/or applications. It need to answer to many questions : tools must be open source or free; reliability of the platform and the ability to scale up quickly. The architecture can be split in two parts : the content preparation and the delivery. I will expose an overview for each part of the architecture. Then I will list differents tools you can use. To finish, I will give you in details the architecture I will choose to deploy. But to realize this, few or some developments can be required, the language you will use, will be your choice. The operating system will be on Linux.
