personal video/audio streaming

by Nil_627 / February 7, 2006 10:35 PM PST

I've started to use new (for me) software for personal media streaming. This is software of Olivelink company (www.olivelink.com). It looks as simple but power tool. I'd like to discuss this software. I think that it is intersting tool for media sharing. And what do you think?

Quicktime for the PC is a very easy and powerful software to use. The basic program is free from Apple, then the Pro version is $30, but "Pro" allows one to easily take almost any video format and prep it for web streaming, especially DV video from camcorders. It also allows you to save many formats of steaming videos to your computer for later usage. Just a thought, unless you need total WMP compatibility.

You are right for Web streaming. But I do not have Web server and I do not want to have it because I do not have many videos to broadcast to all. I want to show some my videos from my home computer to some my friends. I can do this using Olivelink software. Of course, I can send video file to my friends via e-mail or MSN Messenger, but if video file is large then it is not comfortable.

I use Olivelink software. It allow us to broadcast video/audio from home computer without any Web hosting. It does needed encoding automatically. There is no limitations on file size. It is intersting that I can broadcast my video to some friends concurrently. Additionally I did not see any firewall/NAT problems.
