Subject:   [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Re: Livestream vs Wirecast vs Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder
 

i think considering how livestream has been up and down lately on

performance, we should look at other solutions, as backups. it can't

hurt to do the research. and if livestream will donate (cause they

want the traffic/eyes for their stats/advertisers), then other vendors

prolly will. we have the eyes and audience numbers - normally,

streaming companies SPONSOR streams with this many consistent

watchers. lol. i know they took the ads off the Occupy channels, but

they still include the numbers of viewers in their data to

advertisers, etc.
