Title: GetStreamHosting broadcast server.
Post by: 92merc on June 30, 2020, 10:33:54 AM
If you haven't changed your stream to a SSL secure connection, I highly recommend switching/adding GetStreamHosting.  I've been using them for a bit over a month.  They have a one time $5 setup fee.  But I know have a nice SSL connection that Chrome won't complain about.  The nicest thing is their reporting.  On an regular ICECAST server, it only shows max connections and current.  GSH has unique connections, minutes/hours broadcast, and even minutes by IP.  So some nice features.

I'm still broadcasting to Crushed Box server, just because I can.  Buy I consider this now my main stream.  I'm not advocating a mass move from Crushed box.  But in the coming years, SSL will be more and more required.  So this is a fairly cheap option, for now.
