Clipstream Video

Keith, what your employer sells it very cool on first exposure. Is it a practical approach for individuals who stream video for limited audiences - friends, family and the curious? I don't pay for WMEncoders so how much should I be willing to spend for this admittedly fascinating alternative?

David, since this is an older thread, you might need to send an e-mail to Keith alerting him to your query here... I'm sure he'll answer,

Forum Renaming Request

Chris,

Shouldn't this forum be called

DVD, Blu-ray and Web Video Delivery

Thanks for your consideration!

Good question and well-timed; have actually been giving serious thought to splitting it up: web video in one forum, DVD in another. Does Blu-Ray deserve its own board? Probably so. Thoughts?

As long as it's clear where to get BD info, it works for me.

My fear about splitting it too finely is that the BD forum might not get much traffic from people who have answers at hand.

maybe a split between web and disc-based delivery? ...guess i should provide some thoughts on why...

1) web has a wide range of codecs irrelevant to DVD/BR (and vice-versa).
2) disc-based delivery targets tv monitors; web targets computer monitors.
3) disc-based has physical limits; web has bandwidth limits. (weak but w/e)
4) disc-based has fixed specifications, unlikely to change quickly; web standards fluctuate more.
5) there is little info that applies equally to disc & web delivery.

~

that said, i need info on both formats regularly, but i've never needed to know about both at the same time... and i suspect most users are more focused on one or the other.

I would say for the time being a split in two would make more sense. Web stuff is an entirely different animal, so that should be one forum.

The other one should include both DVD and BD since we're all (well, most of us) working with both. They have some specific issues, but the basics are the same; further splitting into separate places may become necessary in a couple of years, with the DVD forum retiring hopefully.

I agree. Having the Web in one forum and optical discs in the other makes logical sense.

I agree too - web in one forum, discs in another...

Since it looks like video is going largley to the web, I would like to see a concentrated web based forum.

I'll help if needed.

I thought I should add my opinion on a new section for web delivery.
It would make it a lot easier for those of us using web delivery.
Save a lot of searching through the current threads and and the threads would be less likely to go off topic.
