the HTML code that Limev gives me does not work on my blog anyone any ideas thanks
limev can host more than 4000 users on stream 800kbps.
if you like a bufferless stream, try streaming with h264 at like 300kbps, it won't buffer.
maybe blog doesnot allow<iframe></iframe> tag, so please use following format http://www.limev.com/flash/embedc.php?personID=YOUR PERSONID HOES HERE&width=480&height=360
person ID = this will display on address bar on streaminfo page
width & height = change it as you need
It can't hold more than a few hundred without alot of lag, why would someone stream off 300kbps? the bitrate you stream off does not affect the viewer numbers, the fact it lags when it's busy is not down to the bitrate the streamer is on, it's down to your cheap ass servers.
Ive seen some bad flash streaming sites, but this one has the feel like a 12yr old is running it from his bedroom.
It's all well and good having different colour skins and having your own logo, but this aint Myspace, as a streamer & a viewer, stability and stable servers is what matters, and on both of these it sucks.
You need better servers.
hey nutjob, we'll be adding more servers to our system soon, usually when there is lots of games played at same time its start to buffer coz lot of users stream different games. Its not a problem with servers we have. we just need to add more server. currently we can support more than 4000 users at a time.
server load on one of our servers at the moment : http://img412.imageshack.us/img412/4397/taski.jpg
A 1gbps server with 1 person streaming at 500kbps can only handle 2000 people, that's the theory.
So if you stream at 300kbps then you should be able to handle over 3000 people, it doesn't always work like this but in theory it should.
So as long as he has good servers, and quite a few of them (like JTV) then he should be fine.
Fact remains the servers can't cope with more than a few hundred on a stream, ive seen that from streams as low as 500 upto 1mb.
It can not cope. And even 3,000 is nothing, anyone who streams a football game in decent quality will always get 5000+
Thank you for bringing up this issue I.LuV.ManUTd! and nutjob, we are adding a CDN to our system, ill update you guys as soon as system updated. Keep us updating on issues (good or bad it will definitely help us to go forward)
Thanks a lot guys.
We just add a CDN to limev.com, can some one test it and tell me how is the quality. FYI for now only 2000 users accepted at a time.
big thank for all the streamers

Well, I mostly see black screen now, while audio keeps playing.
Also, you've added advertising and clickable logo to your player, so all the advantages are gone.
You should increase your CDN capacity in order for streamers to keep using your service.
Personally, I will NOT be using limev from now on until something changes.
perryli you can put your logo only on new system with CDN. Yanis94 we are adding such a plugin.
if you guys can please test our flash CDN it and give us a feedback on issues.
What I wonna test is the stability of their service before i purchase a bigger package. right now my package can hold 2000 users. I want to buy much bigger package. Before spend too much on CDN service I just want to know quality of their service. Which means, someone have to stream a game which have at least 1000 viewers, so I have confidence when I am purchasing.
Can you allow repubishing to limev from FMS ?
I currently have a number of streams on my own FMS, but when I try to republish it on limev it doesn't work.
I know that my setup is good because republishing works with justin and zonein.
I can also stream from FME, but not from FMS.
Can you look into that ?
contact the limev admin, we have to run a serverside script for that. i dont handle those.
Actually, i did write to the limev admin about it a week ago, but didn't receive any reply.
Just add more server, enjoy buffferless streams on Limev
Thank You !
