H264 streaming

May 5th, 2008

As Adobe released a new version of their flashplayer capable of showing h264, we got excited: the quality is really good (much, much better than flash).

But, you need an Adobe server to stream content … and they do not come cheap!

Well, mod_h624_streaming, a plugin for lighttpd – a really fast and performing webserver – can help there.

If you want a demo – please look here (mind you, have the Adobe 9 beta installed :)

It’s open source, so you can add it to your distribution, create an Apache (or other) plugin from it – it’s not hard to do …

Even so, we customized the setup for a few customers in the USA – so if you see some cool high-res streamin’ vids … chances are it’s mod_h264_streaming.
