mms worked. RTSP didn't.

Chewing up a constant 40kbyte-ish. On a 1.5m connection.

Audio/video is extremely smooth, but the video quality is not so good (291kbit/s).

Personally, I think it's a great idea. But only with the right channels. BBC/Discovery/HBO/Bloomberg would be great. Phoenix TV is just Chinese propaganda (that is free to air on satellite), and I wouldn't pay for ATV/TVB.

But that's just me.

What are the ports used for the two streaming protocols on trail by Exetel? I can't get the streaming to work when my firewall is on.

100% perfect stream for both mms and rtsp using VLC on Optus ADSL2+, even with my line profile on 8mbps.
However, using Windows Media Player is a completely different story. Perfectly smooth audio, but video at 0.1 frames per second (yes, the decimal point is in the right place).

So if you're having problems with Windows Media Player, try VLC.

Someone mentioned Bloomberg, personally I think that's a good idea, but I don't know if there is enough demand for financial market services among Exetel customers.

Bloomberg is a free channel that would be easy to provide.

Ok, on my ADSL2+ (Optus bundled) connection it is OK, but certainly no match to a normal DVD quality. This is not meant as criticism - but what can you expect for such bandwidth? I believe it is good enough - so waiting to see what's on offer
The quality will continue to be improved by reducing the current coding/decoding steps involved in the demonstration service.

This will occur over the next ten days.

So easy that you could make it free?

Worth a shot :)
