    "You may need to be a techie but it works fantastic"

    Version: Unreal Media Server 10.0


    Actually, you don't have to be that technical to figure this out, especially compared to something with zero UI like Wowza or a giant UI like IIS. This is a great product. Also, you don't need the plug-in to play video but it does offer a better experience. You can just use JW Player. Besides, IE is free so who cares if it uses IE?


    For the money, absolutely none.


    Great product. Set up your own home surveillance system using old smart phones if you like. This server will let you pull all the video together, archive the streams, pause playback...everything. Very nice.

    "Decent Media server"

    July 19, 2008   |   By bigblue8503

    Version: Unreal Media Server 5.5


    Unreal Media server is a good program for use in closed network enviroments as long as all computers on the network have the unreal media player installed. Easy to understand interface and plays most media types. Plus the additional media player can be embedded in html for use in webpages.


    The only thing I found wrong with this program is that the plug-in for the player only seems to support internet explorer, and other players seem to have problems playing video over the network.

    "Fantastic, small memory footprint. High quality."

    April 27, 2005   |   By ianlongdon

    Version: Unreal Media Server 3.0 service pack 1


    I just downloaded this program as I'd tried ATI EazyShare and Beyond TV...too complicated and many compatibility issues.

    I can now stream stereo, high quality TV from my living room Media Centre PC to all networked PCs in my house. I'm doing it via a 54g USB connection, and for decent quality it only needs around 700K per second.

    It's limited to 56Kbps for audio, but you can license it for higher audio bit-rates.

    Amazingly, I notice less that half a second lag from the source (TV) to network PCs!

    No problems with installation or firewall/port issues.

    It can also stream via HTTP, which I haven't tried yet, but I believe I could stream my webcam if I wanted to (it can stream any Directshow device).

    Highly recommended (see my rave at h t t p:/ /ianlongdon.blogspot.com).


    The audio can become out of synch after 15 mins or so if network traffic is interrupted. This is sorted by just clicking STOP and PLAY again.
