    hi guys,

    a church has asked me to provide a solution for them to be able to broadcast their services over the net.

    it must be portable, and will be servicing +- 30 to 40 online people...

    will it require a web site? (As i would avoid this if i can)

    there is a 7mb dsl connection in the church.

    any suggestions please.

    PK

    You'll probably need to upgrade that service then. Most people are so fixated on the download speed of a service when they totally ignore the upload speed. In your situation, you need the most upload speed possible. You can do the math yourself and figure out what you need.

    Start by figuring out how much bandwidth you're going to consume for one user connecting in to the video stream. This is dependent on the quality of the video/audio you're looking to run. Only you can answer this. So figure a very basic and rudimentary video stream of about 100Kb/s. Multiply this times 30-40 and you'll have your ball park bandwidth requirement minus any other ancillary network traffic you have going out to the internet at the time. You also need to make sure your video streaming server is sized appropriately to handle that many users.

    try video streaming using VLC or just run Apache and then on the client side use flowplayer http://flowplayer.org
    I tried it out on lan .It worked well.

    It sounds like there isn't anything there in terms of video capture. You'll have to figure out a budget for camera(s), video encoding and streaming, and bandwidth. I don't have any suggestions in particular.
