But Text Chat working well, pbm in Video only...... My server is from influxis with Bandwidth 1 mbps, But My application got 13 mb totally, It is any pbm in the server,

I'm very newbie to FMS, so excuse my silliest question and explains if its.

    You should increase your bandwidth of server.

    Well, I would first calculate how much bandwidth each of your connections use, multiply by the number of users, and you'll then get your overall bandwidth usage. The tool will allow you to calculate roughly what each video will use in terms of bandwidth in Kilobits per second.


    Say for example:


    your video/voice/chat uses 500 kilobits per second -> you could have 2 simultaneous connections (1 Megabit per second = 1000 kilobits per second)


    As another example, say we have a 200 Megabit per second link, we would be able to provide around 400 simultaneous connections (200 Megabits per second = 200000 Kilobits per second).


    Hope that gives you idea.

    1 Mbps bandwidth is not enough for your project.

    1 user will cost about 300Kbps bandwidth when he publish or play a stream from FMS,both publish and  play will cost 300Kbps*2=600Kbps,etc.












    Kindly explain How this calculator helps me.. to clear my bandwidth pbm.... I have 1 mbps bandwidth FMS, But I'm developing a video chat, I want to know this bandwidth is enough or not for my project, In the chat there are so many users can at a time... So please advise me is enough or not, if enough why I cant get the video from my server...


    Hopes you near to me...
