Internet TV

Bandwidth
Data transfer
I have a client that wants to produce a daily 5 minute TV program on the Internet. If I stream the program, FLASH, how do I calculate the bandwidth or data transfer that I will need if I'm calculating 100,000 viewers a day?

Hello,
On my website, I have an 8 minute flash video that is 13MB. Of course, your size may vary based on the resolution of the video.
Let’s say that your 5 minute video was 10MB, for easy calculations. Here is what I estimate:
10MB x 100,000 viewers x 31 days = 31,000,000MB or 31TB per month?? Wow, that seems like a lot but the math looks right to me.

What do you think?

While I have done some periodic flash videos on my website, I am interested in creating daily blog videos too. If you care to talk more about this, my blog info is below. You can contact me there.
