I would like to write a multicast video conference platform. I just wrote the SilverLight client application that captures a webcam and i can see one other person that connects to me. I now need to implement the MultiCast part where 5 users can see each other at the same time, live and streaming.
I wonder if IIS the right server that can help me creating the MultiCast part? Further more, i would like to know if IIS Smooth Streaming is the right way to go or this should be used only for Video Players that stream an already saved and encoded video, instead of
many live streams coming from various simultaneous webcams?
I know that Flash has a open source server that allows that but I'm pretty sure IIS can also be used for this. I just need to understand how :-)
Looking forward to hearing from you.
