OK folks, things have settled down and we are good to go. After some considerations the legal concerns for Loomiere/Stream are now cleared and gone. The source is now released and will be available indefinitely. Again, this streamer (minimally customized) has already been serving all the video content at http://peteava.ro for 3 full months (for those seeking a demo).
Source code: loomiere-0.2.1-tar.gz
Any software downloaded from this website is *never* to be associated in any form with pornographic or erotic content! I.E. “Loomiere/Stream” must *never* be used to stream pornographic or erotic videos! There are plenty alternatives if you can’t help it.
Just a teaser:
Fighting the video-streaming problem has taught me very many things which, in turn, led me to realize that I might be able to use a substantially different streaming approach to achieve a massive amount of optimization in this field. So quite soon, I think I’ll have ready a brand new (and far more powerful) streamer that aims at making it possible for a single server to serve many thousands (I am still testing this) of streams simultaneously using commodity hardware. I am not yet settled on whether this project will be commercial, open-sourced or both but I hope to clear this aspect soon as well. Real-world streaming (i.e. before and after) statistics will be made available on release.
Stay tuned! 🙂
