Micronica Streaming Video & Audio Servers
Some Common Questions
Our streaming Video and Audio Servers work with both high speed an low speed
WAN and LAN links on both Internet and Intranet networks. Setup is extremely simple.
So simple you can get streaming Video up and running in as little as 1 hour! And it really works very well !
Or we can set it all up for you.
For full info, check out www.micronica.com.au/catalog.
Of course the best thing is to get one and try it for yourself ! So you can
see and understand how easy it is :)
Following are notes for some specific common questions we have been asked
Q: Can i see streaming video without a plugin ? Any disadvantages ?
A: Yes you can view streaming video without a plugin. The web page
for the streaming video gives you that choice. Without plugin it uses a Java Applet to
show MJPEG video. But it is of course slower than using the plugin which
shows H263 video.
Q: There seem to be two plugins. LVSETUP.EXE and PLUGINS.EXE. What is the
A: PLUGINS.EXE is downloadable from bottom left area of the viewing web page and is required for
Internet Explorer V5.0 and Netscape. But the later versions of IE 5.0 SP2, 5.5, 6.0 NO LONGER support
plugins and Microsoft uses ActiveX is instead. So LVSETUP.EXE is ActiveX for IE only.
PLUGINS.EXE is now only for use in Netscape.
When viewing the streaming video for the first time using Internet Explorer
the ActiveX Plugin will pop up automatically. The Netscape plugin is without pop-up syntax in html so we have to put a link on
the web page to download PLUGINS.EXE and install it manually.
Q: Is it possible to rent one of the video servers rather than buy it
A: YES, you can rent it if you only have an occasional even which you
want to televise over your network or internet. Typically rental is
$395/week plus GST. We can even come out and set it all up for you if you
like at our standard service rates. See http://micronica.com.au for service rates.
