Video has been tested and working fine, I am not sure how to get 180 people onto the server to ensure the stress levels etc are working within the required specifications. Lets be honest, webhosting providers do over sell their wares.
My previous server got banned although the video was fine and the specs should have been able to handle the streams it was set to. I suspect that it was hit prety hard which took it over its limit. It was tested privately but I did not count on the demand out there.
Whats your advice on road testing a server in the real world?
Would be nice to have some sort of programme that automatically tests a new channel by logging on bots or something to give a new broadcaster an understanding of their hardware capabilities - I stress everytime I put something live - I already have a $200/m server gathering dust
