Wowza Streaming on DigitalOcean

Posted December 24, 2014 5.6k views

Is setting up a Wowza streaming environment for a few hundred viewers a few times a week an acceptable use of DO’s droplets? I need a few simple VPS’s and I’d love to use DO instead of AWS.

Definetly. As long as the content you are streaming is legal, you’ll be fine. You get full root access to you droplet and the ability to install whatever you want.

Let us know if you have anymore questions!

Do you have recommandation for streaming, how many stream can you push. If I would like to push to 5000 users, at 3mb/s would it be possible and what ressources do you recommend, do you have any limitation on how much you can push,
