control the stream

hi,

first of all, sorry for my horrible english.
second, i need a method to control the stream for my users.
i want a live stream, one hour per day and just for "paying" users.
the users they are logged in but not "paying" for the service just become the first 5 minutes of the one hour stream.

first i think about to manage it with php, but thats not the
right way i think. because one apache child for every user
is not very good. the same for using mod_proxy.

have anyone of you an idea to solve this problem?


greets,
tobsn

what in the world makes you think that people are going to pay for something that they can get for free????

only one hour a day, while there are plenty stations to be found on the internet that stream 24/7 and there isn't a thing that isn't streamed on the net, comedy, talkradio, you name it, it is there.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Nope, it's not a radiostation just a non stop darkwave music stream

jesus christ...

i use the word "paying" because i think with this synonym its better to understand what i mean.
(have u dont see the quotes around the word like -> "paying")
the users are not real paying for it. its just a member service.

so, dont think about this word.


and its not a radio show or something. its a live video stream thru shoutcast with this new nsv thing.

AND i have no problems with paying a shoutcast license (if its possible) for this project. but befor this all i want to know if its possible to make what i want.


so i'am happy about a technical answer, sorry but if u have no technical answers for me go and hear your plenty comedy streams.

There are some references to password protected streams but it is not an easy thing to implement, do a search for something related to "password protected"

u are the rude one ... iam just asking and u hit me with this payment phrase.


btw. it plays no role if the stream is audio or video.
stream is stream. so i can ask here, because its a technical shoutcast problem.

nope it's an issue for the nsv forum part, since you are going to stream video , this part of the forum is for the shoutcast audio streams.

and i wasn't rude i was simply asking what made you think that people were going to pay or subscribe to one hour daily broadcasting while there's plenty out there that stream 24/7
if english isn't your main language you might understand it the wrong way.
it wasn't intended as an insult, but as a question.
you were the one that replied with insults to me!

tobsn, there is a setting in the shoutcast server:

; ListenerTimer is a value in minutes of maximum permitted time for
; a connected listener. If someone is connected for longer than this
; amount of time, in minutes, they are disconnected. When undefined,
; there is no limit defined. Default is undefined.
ListenerTimer=5

this should get you started


spaceplay, people pay for specialty channels on TV, people pay for PPV, people pay for news video (been to cnn.com lately?), and people pay for high quality nsv streams, and that is a proven fact.
