Subject RE: Streaming Media

Just a question re: streaming media...what compels people to use Real as
opposed to either QT or Windows Media, when either of those can be done
much more cheaply.

The reason I ask is that I work at a post-production company and our new
non-linear editor/switcher (the Newtek Toaster 2 for Windows) will let
us stream video real time (including switching between sources etc...)
although we haven't tried it ourselves.

I'm just wondering what benefits Real offers that either of the other
solutions don't, considering that they both seem easier AND cheaper to
implement (I don't run Real as I've ALWAYS found it buggy on a variety
of Windows boxes - and so have many people I've talked to who run NT
or 2000.

I know it's kinda OT, but I'm trying to get a better understanding of
streaming and Apache.

I believe you need real's streaming server (rtsp is the protocol), but
Apache 2.0 when finalized could have a protocol module for realmedia, just
like ftp, etal
