The HTTP Streaming Page

On this page you can specify how the audio and video should be streamed via HTTP, for instance by setting upper limits for simultaneous users and bandwith use.

The Port field specifies the network port on which the content will be served.

Select the User Limit option to specify the maximum number of clients that may simultaneously view the stream.

Select the Bandwidth Limit option to specify the maximum Megabits per second that may be streamed by all clients in total.

Select the Burst on Connect option send buffered data to new clients. This reduces the delay before playback starts but increases the latency.

The worker drop-down choice allows you to choose what computer this component should run on, for instance if the camera is attached to a different computer that is available via the network. This allows you to distribute tasks across several server computers. See the Deployment chapter to learn how to create extra workers. The Configuration Assistant would then offer these workers in the drop-down choice after connecting to their manager.
