II. Compatible Hosting
This software has special requirements (for the video streaming and live interaction part, regular shared web hosting is not enough):
You can use our rtmp hosting plans for everything (web+rtmp, required to run advanced features) or in combination with your other web hosting (install application on your site and configure it to use rtmp address from a plan you have with us).
If you need to enable live video archiving, we recommend Wowza and using same server for web and rtmp is required (so rtmp videos are accessible by web scripts). If you need mobile video delivery by HLS supported by this solution, Wowza is required. Transcoding requires FFMPEG with specific codecs on web host.
If you just need a remote RTMP host for main functionality, to use it in combination with a different web host, see the Host RTMP – Remote RTMP hosting plans from $9/month. These plans do not support advanced functionality like HLS mobile video delivery or video archiving, video teaser, playlists and also has simultaneous users and bitrate limitations.
To support advanced features like archiving, recording, conversions, transcoding, HLS/MPEG HTML5 streaming, playlists, video teasers we recommend our complete plans.
For full features & optimal functionality, considering running such website usually requires a dedicated server and Wowza license alone is $95/month, we provide very affordable complete plans for our clients, that start from $50/month and include hosting requirements for all features (web + rtmp) :
Complete Turnkey Hosting
Our plans are optimised for streaming, on 1000Mbps connection and managed by our administrators that setup and keep services running at optimum performance.
For big projects we can provide managed dedicated streaming servers with Wowza from $275/month (paid yearly) and managed dedicated streaming servers with Red5 from $225/month (paid yearly).
PS: We don’t recommend using a provider that does not have experience with these streaming solutions as that often leads to long setup hassle and unreliable service. Our administrators can assist in setting up 3rd party servers, for additional fees, but such 3rd party hosts may not be designed (as hardware, network, system, configuration) to provide such features with good performance and reliability. Using our plans and servers is usually faster, more cost effective and reliabile that setting up own servers, licensing all necessary software at retail price, administrating custom streaming configurations and services.
