OTT #6: Where to Host Your Videos for OTT Distrobution
On Episode 6, we get into the content creation side of the OTT. You have created your videos, now it’s time to send to the world. But where are you going to upload your videos to?
In this episode, Jeffrey Powers talks the current news of OTT. He then gets into locations you can look into purchasing space to upload video.
The most important thing to note is never put your audio/video where you host your website. It simply cannot handle traffic if a video goes viral. Last thing you need is a website that went down due to bandwidth or visitors.
Places to look at uploading video:
– YouTube – Limited STB use, though
– Host your own, like Amazon EC2, Rackspace or GoDaddy dedicated server
– KoldCastTV – for people creating Webisodes
– Internet Archive – For those who want to publish open source
