How can I stream to mobile phones?
Posted by - NA - on 10 October 2005 09:41 AM
Streaming in the 3gpp format to mobile phones is still relatively new and requires a large investment. Currently a dedicated server is required to do 3gpp streaming, which would be anywhere from $100 a month on up, after server purchase or rental. We are developing a lower cost 3gpp streaming solution, but no timetable has been set for this release.
