From Ghana I would like to ask everybody for information on so-called video publishing platforms. This is software that you use to publish videos with. Kaltura is a specific example or think about the software Youtube developed to actually play their videos.
At the moment I am helping with starting up a software company here in Ghana and they're busy in developing their own video publishing platform. Existing platforms are either too expensive(think of $50000 with pro versions) or impossible to use. In the development procedure they are looking for information about specific parts within this platform, for example the video-encoding-system, the video player, analytic-software or the content-delivery-network.
Now I hope that there are people who can help us with answering (some of) the following questions:
- One of the necessary parts is called a video encoding system, who used systems like this before and who has certain recommendations?
- Besides that we need a video player that supports live streaming and allows video+slide synchronization at the same moment. Is anyone familiar with existing software and can you recommend anything?
- The Content Delivery Network is used to safe all the data, who knows software which is not too expensive and usable?
If anyone has extra information on this subject in general, please leave it in a comment because everything would help the and the Ghanaians a lot! Thanks a lot in advance!!
