Video Streaming: Technical Aspects, Challenges, Budget

Video streaming — technical implementation

The problems of implementation with a tight budget

  • Long time of the video files uploading to the server;
  • Possible loading errors. This may be due to a timeout on uploading a large file;
  • Long video buffering time due to the fact the file fails to contain additional details about the keyframes;
  • Great server response time, since in case of the limited budget it will not be possible to add geo-distribution support. Not only should the possibility of geo-distribution, but also synchronization of information between servers be considered;
  • Possible problems in the Asian network segment.
