[REBOL] Rebol Streaming Server

From: mpcweber::comcast::net at: 15-Oct-2003 15:24

To Rebol gurus out there - do you think Rebol could be used to develop a web-based streaming server and optional client. This being a project I have been interested in but have not picked a implementation language yet (candidates are Java/Apache, C#.Net/IIS, Rebol/Apache or write Rebol web server). The server spec would include: - multi-threaded web server and load balancer - capable of integrating (API calls) to a payment processing engine - parsing new MPEG4 format to convey video title/chapter/navigation data to client - configuarable data download size - restart/resume capability - dynamically reconfigurable I suspect it would be difficult if not impossible to write the client in Rebol since the local OS and hardware is involved. If it proves to difficult, then the option is to customize a commercial client like MSMediaPlayer, QuickTime or RealPlayer. Michael P. Weber | Sr. Software Engineer | Seattle, WA
