Whitepaper - MistServer: A Lightweight, Highly Scalable Media Server

Whitepaper - MistServer: A Lightweight, Highly Scalable Media Server | Streaming Video | Scoop.it
This white paper explores MistServer, a greenfield initiative by DDVTech BV, The Netherlands-based startup who recently created a lightweight, scalable media server. With a goal of solving significant media delivery problems, MistServer’s design offers benefits over current solutions. Brains and brawn, just not in the same place. DDVTech’s MistServer is based on a philosophy that a media server should do what it does best: serve audio and video streams. They split the brawn (MistServer) from the brain (MistSteward, MistCenter, or a web control interface).

Whitepaper & Overview : Media Servers' Performance Comparison

Whitepaper & Overview : Media Servers' Performance Comparison | Streaming Video | Scoop.it
Welcome to the summary of the 2014 Q2 research paper by DDVTech. Adding Adobe and Flussonic helps to give an overview about the some media servers in in terms of performance, giving a more solid baseline set by media server in different programming languages. The new Burst tests results show that most media servers are not able to widthstand a sudden increase in load. As automation is going to play a big role in the future we'll see this type of load more often so we'd advice everyone to prepare for the future and these kind of loads. We'll share some of the graphs and tables below, the number next to the line of each graphs represents the number of people that had a succesfull full view of the test video. (...)

Premium HTML5 Video Coming to a Browser Near You

Premium HTML5 Video Coming to a Browser Near You | Streaming Video | Scoop.it
With the recent announcements from Apple/Netflix and Mozilla, all modern desktop browsers will soon support the proposed HTML Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) standard. EME provides a standardized approach for playing encrypted content in HTML5. One application of encrypted video is the enforcement of Digital Rights Management (DRM) on paid video content. Many content owners (film studios, sports leagues, etc.) mandate using DRM to distribute their content online.What does all of this alphabet soup mean for users? In short, the EME standard enables publishers to deliver premium video to browsers without the need for plugins. To date, doing DRM in the browser requires the Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight or Google Widevine plugins. These plugins use non-interoperable file formats, protocols and DRM key systems, creating fragmentation. EME solves (most of) these issues, enabling premium video in HTML5 using a single file format and streaming protocol.

Improving the Quality of Experience with MPEG-DASH Ultra HD

Improving the Quality of Experience with MPEG-DASH Ultra HD | Streaming Video | Scoop.it

How can publishers ensure that their viewers are getting a TV-like experience with MPEG-DASH video? At the recent Streaming Forum conference in London, experts from Qualcomm and Bitmovin explained the finer points of QoE for DASH.

"How can the DASH standard or standardized formats have to increase the quality, once there is some kind of metrics or logging functionality at the client that gives you means to communicate to another instance -- a logging server or whatever -- what's going on in the client side?" asked Christian Timmerer, CIO for Bitmovin. "In DASH there is an Annex D which is a normative definition of semantics for these metrics according to different observation points. If you have the DASH access client -- that basically is the one that issues the HTTP request -- and gets the responses and hands that over to what we call here a DASH-enabled application, which then in the end feeds into a display for rendering purposes or whatever."

There are a few different layers and components that are required in order for a developer to take advantage of this, however. This includes an ICE server (which wraps one or more STUN or TURN servers), a data connection to your webserver, whether it’s Ajax, WebSockets, SSE, or something else, properly encoded video (exclusively using Google’s VP8 codec), and properly encoded audio (e.g. Opus)… All of which is encrypted as SRTP (secure RTP).

HTTP/2.0 and DASH: Planning Tomorrow's Improved Video Delivery

HTTP/2.0 and DASH: Planning Tomorrow's Improved Video Delivery | Streaming Video | Scoop.it
HTTP traffic has grown extensively driven by the immense growth of multimedia traffic. Nowadays, it could be seen as the protocol to deploy new services and applicationsand it is also heavily used by the industry, due to the fact that it provides advanced features for modern internet architectures. It is a content centric protocol that decouples names from addresses through DNSIt provides caching elements and middle boxes as reverse and forward proxiesIt enables scalable and flexible content deployment with content distribution, already leveraged by Content Distribution Networks (CDN) However, there is room for improvement as many services are still using HTTP/1.0 which was specified in May 1996, or are not using all the features of HTTP/1.1, such as persistent connections or pipelining. For example, already deployed HTTP streaming solutions such as Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Apple HTTP Live Streaming, and Adobe Dynamic Streaming do not use HTTP/1.1 pipelining with persistent connections, which could increase the streaming performance by up to 30 percent. Unfortunately, there are not many proxies that support HTTP/1.1 pipelining with persistent connections, due to the Head-of-Line (HoL) blocking problem where one pending response could possibly delay a range of other responses. The problem is that the proxy has to send in-order responses, which means that earlier arriving out-of-order responses will be blocked until the response that causes the HoL blocking arrives.

Streaming Video Technologies Panorama, part 2 : Server-Side Stream Repackaging

Streaming Video Technologies Panorama, part 2 : Server-Side Stream Repackaging | Streaming Video | Scoop.it

There are basically two ways to sustain the extensive growth of video formats that you must, as a media distributor, serve to your different clients’ target devices : the most common answer is to choose the best in breed most-powerful encoders to prepare all the target formats during the content preparation time (see Panorama article N°1 [url=http://blog.eltrovemo.com/?p=91]on this topic[/url]), but you can adopt a different approach saying that you want to prepare your contents once and have the distribution part of the overall workflow take care of the repackaging and protection of the contents on the fly.

Server-side repackaging of the streams consists eventually in :
- choosing languages in audio and subtitle tracks available in the original mux (optional)
- transcoding/transrating the video content in different sizes/bitrates from a high quality video file (optional)
- applying a DRM compatible with the output format (optional)
- generating the manifest file corresponding to the target adaptive streaming technology (mandatory)
- remuxing and chunking the video data according to the output protocol requirements (mandatory)

Historically, repackaging was pushed as a quick solution for broadcasters to add iOS streams on top of existing Smooth or Flash streams. In a wider OTT/Adaptive Bitrate perspective, this alternative approach means : less files to manage in the main production workflow, less storage, less bandwidth to populate the origin servers, smaller time to contents’ online availability and easier support for new formats – shortly said, an agile path.

Potentially a risky one, but quite attractive…

Let's examine the available options on the market, to do it on your own platform or in the cloud !
