Apple has updated its
Darwin Streaming Server, the open source server for streaming QuickTime data, to version 3.0.1. The new revision features improved quality of service improvements, Web-based administration, reliable broadcasting support, and more.
Darwin Streaming Server is server technology which allows you to send streaming QuickTime data to clients across the Internet using the industry standard RTP and RTSP protocols. It’s based on the same code as Apple’s QuickTime Streaming Server. QuickTime Streaming Server lets you start up your own streaming digital video channel on the Internet, or serve up live events over the web. The RTP proxy lets organizations bring multiple incoming QuickTime streams through a firewall.
Darwin Steaming Server is available in various compiled binaries with assorted functionality that support Mac OS X Server 10.0, FreeBSD 3.5, Red Hat Linux 6.2, Solaris 7, and Windows NT Server/Windows 2000 Server. And since it’s open source, well, if you want to compile it for your own environment, give it a try.
