Also push out a 4 stream multi bitrate HLS at https://willowcreek.tv. I don’t recall them ever having to reboot or troubleshoot the actual device. The only hiccups we’ve had have been on our side. These guys also have proprietary software and hardware, they actually use GPU’s to do all the workload. We have a pretty good deadline after our final server to edit and encode so its on the website by Sunday afternoon and this has always done the job
One feature we havent taken advantage of but Ive heard about in the sales pitch was that you can buy 2 or more of these and link them all together to make a transcoding farm and the software will automatically push the video file to the server with the less load. Pretty neat! Let me know if you want some more information!
