How consumers make decisions

Every day, people form impressions of brands from touch points such as advertisements, news reports, conversations with family and friends, and product experiences. Unless consumers are actively shopping, much of that exposure appears wasted. But what happens when something triggers the impulse to buy? Those accumulated impressions then become crucial because they shape the initial-consideration set: the small number of brands consumers regard at the outset as potential purchasing options.

The funnel analogy suggests that consumers systematically narrow the initial-consideration set as they weigh options, make decisions, and buy products. Then, the postsale phase becomes a trial period determining consumer loyalty to brands and the likelihood of buying their products again. Marketers have been taught to “push” marketing toward consumers at each stage of the funnel process to influence their behavior. But our qualitative and quantitative research in the automobile, skin care, insurance, consumer electronics, and mobile-telecom industries shows that something quite different now occurs.

Actually, the decision-making process is a more circular journey, with four primary phases representing potential battlegrounds where marketers can win or lose: initial consideration; active evaluation, or the process of researching potential purchases; closure, when consumers buy brands; and postpurchase, when consumers experience them (Exhibit 2). The funnel metaphor does help a good deal—for example, by providing a way to understand the strength of a brand compared with its competitors at different stages, highlighting the bottlenecks that stall adoption, and making it possible to focus on different aspects of the marketing challenge. Nonetheless, we found that in three areas profound changes in the way consumers make buying decisions called for a new approach.

hosting marketers, office, they hosting with rtmp and rtmp hosting since 2005

Hosting Marketers uses the rtmp server which is a protocol to stream video, media and live events in the internet between browsers. This offering of them uses the RTMP Hosting which is from wowza.

Lets first explain what is a media server. A media server in this case the rtmp hosting provided by Hosting Marketers a web host which is online since 2005, differently from a normal server which is used mainly to host web sites is used to handle media events, audio, video streaming, video chat and so on.

Than Hosting Marketers with their RTMP solutions implement a way that connect to the input which could be a video camera or a microphone and then connect to the output which is a flash player so the user sitting behind a desktop or a laptop can hear or see the video with the stream.

RTMP Server in the era of HTTP video streaming

Given the growing popularity and support of HTTP video streaming, it may be tempting to consider Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) streaming obsolete. But in many cases, working with RTMP server is still very meaningful. As soon as Macromedia first pronounced RTMP with Flash Player 6 in 2002, the brand new Macromedia Flash Communication Server MX (FCS) required to stream the evolving Flash Video (FLV) format, stream was live or VOD.

However, for FCS, licensing costs were high (up to $5,000 per server), and as a result, CDN costs were high than other proprietary streaming formats. Some manufacturers in the industry have called RTMP streaming costs a “Flash tax”. But Flash Player has been a ubiquitous introduction to desktop browsers for well over a decade, much larger than other plug-ins. Though, streaming server technology has traditionally been harder for web developers to implement, and simpler HTTP delivery has mostly been easier and more cost-effective. In 2003, Macromedia enabled Flash Player 7 to support HTTP delivery of FLV files, allowing integrators to use standard web server technology to deploy online video.

So in many ways, RTMP as a VOD transport delivery has not been a requirement for web video for more than a decade. As a video solution architect, I think of business requirements as the leader in most audio video decisions. And still, in 2014, RTMP is the de facto standard for the following use cases:

Publishing live streams from software/hardware encoders: Almost all streaming devices support RTMP to publish to CDN providers and streaming servers. Some native mobile applications also use RTMP libraries to publish live video from their mobile camera.

Near-instant search/playback: One of the benefits of RTMP streaming is its enhanced search capability. With real-time streaming, the player can search anywhere in the video with less buffering than HTTP delivery. However, to enjoy this feature, you need a Flash Player on your desktop and as such, it is not possible in mobile browsers. HTML5 browsers use HTTP domain requests to facilitate faster searching of VOD files.

Content Protection: RTMP Server can facilitate different levels of content protection, from obfuscation to true DRM. RTMP streams are not stored for playback on a desktop browser.

Adaptive Streaming: One of the preferred uses of RTMP is adaptive streaming playback, where we provide the video player with more bitrates and content resolutions, providing the best resolution at the current network speed. Some HTTP adaptive streaming technologies, such as HLS and MPEG-DASH, allow similar delivery, but RTMP may be more responsive to switching one bitrate to another. Unfortunately, there is no standard for HTTP adaptive streaming between HTML5 video-enabled browsers. As such, the Flash-based display of adaptive streaming is still a requirement for adaptive streaming.

Live Streaming Playback: While live streams do not need to be adaptive, compressed video segments apply the same principle to all live streaming playback. For desktop playback within the browser, virtually every live streaming event requires a video player that supports Flash-based rendering and RTMP playback. Apple Safari on iOS natively supports HLS, and luckily, all modern streaming servers, including the Wowza Streaming Engine, support RTMP and HLS compression.

rtmp hosting

The requirement for a Live Streaming Flash Player will only change if MPEG-DASH appears everywhere as Flash currently. If Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 support is required to install live streaming, then RTMP streaming is still required. Also, if you need a delay close to zero in a live stream, then HTTP streaming will almost certainly not meet your needs while RTMP is capable; HTTP mechanisms require that multiple packets be collected on the server before being sent to the video player.

In summary, if your video workflow involves live streaming or any kind of packaged video installation, RTMP is the key to a successful video experience. HTTP delivery has already replaced most Flash VOD installs on video, but HTTP video can’t handle all RTMP video use cases.

Another important setup on Red5 Server is the Python Hosting offered to all hosting customers, with python cpanel hosting the advantage is cheaper and easier to install and run python scripts on a normal hosting. With Python Hosting and rtmp server the customer can really start a webmasters and increase a number of usages to host python scripts or even video chat or live streaming.

As my university professor used to say the computers language for the next 50 years will be python, fast, easier with multiple modules which allow any developer to start an application running python is a few short hours.

How do I use the IP camera stream (RTSP) as a local video in the Kurento application?

This is possible, but not necessarily easy. You need to find a utility that will receive the RTSP stream from the camera, and offer if as a virtual webcam to the WebRTC application. I’ve done this using vMix, which is a heavyweight commercial video production application. OBS Studio is similar, and open source, but lacks the virtual webcam capability. Most virtual webcam tools cannot use an RTSP stream as a source.

The more difficult approach is to have one application display the RTSP stream, and use another application to screen capture that like a rtmp server which at rtmp can use IP camera, offering it as a virtual webcam. VLC couple play the stream easily. SparkoCam could provide the virtual webcam. The video quality usually suffers using this approach.

I can think of a third approach that could be promising. It involves using the production quality NDI streaming format for passing video over IP. Use VLC to play the RTSP. Install Newtek’s free NDI plugin for VLC. This allows VLC to stream the playback as an NDI stream. Then use one of their other NDI utilities to convert that NDI stream to a virtual webcam. I suspect this could be done on the same host.

RTMP Hosting

What is RTMP? or what is the use of a RTMP?

 

RTMP is kind of URL used by media servers, it is a protocol to connect for example a video camera to a media server or a viewer of a streaming event to the media server.

Lets first explain what is a media server. A media server differently from a normal server which is used mainly to host web sites is used to handle media events, audio, video streaming, video chat and so on. and the way they connect to the input which could be a video camera or a microphone and then connect to the output which is a flash player so the user sitting behind a desktop or a laptop can hear or see the video with the stream.rtmp hosting

The main media servers are Adobe Media Server, Red5 and Wowza Streaming Engine. All 3 have the RTMP, but the rtmp is used on flash players and it has been decided that flash players are vulnerable to security holes and they use lots of laptop battery so flash players are going slowly out, the new HTML5 Players will not use RTMP.

Red5 the open source version has not yet evolve to support other protocols, while adobe media and wowza have enabled different system to support the HTML5 Player.

An example of a RTMP:

rtmp://209.95.xxx.xxx/videowhisper

RTMP Hosting

Few hosting companies support media servers or RTMP Hosting, first because it is very resource intensive and so needs high end servers but also because not many people are familiar with the management of media servers and if they are it becomes expensive to hire them on a permanent basis.

There is but a few like Red5 Server and Hosting Marketers. Hosting Marketers was the first hosting company offering media servers on they shared plan, it started with Video One costing $9.95 a month and with one RTMP assigned to the account free of any extra fee. The rtmp was from red5, but now for the last 5 years Hosting Marketers is also offering Wowza Hosting which supports RTMP and HTML5 protocols.

 

 

red5 news

Red5 is a media server created with Java language. It is a free open source software but recently a new version Red5 Pro came out developed by the same people, this new version supports streaming to mobiles, Android or iOS, which red5 does not. The Red5 Pro is commercial product and costs $55 per server.

A media server allows Flash based applications connect to it using Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP). The server can send and receive data to and from the connected users who have a flash player installed. The server also allows users to receive and publish streams. This permits video chat applications, live streaming and even ondemand video streaming.

Most common Video chat software’s are:
1- Avchat
2- Videowhisper
3- Prochatrooms
4- Gchats

For live streaming the necessary tool if you already have a server with red5 installed is an encoder, an encoder is the software that will connect your computer to the red5 server using the RTMP, which your server provider will give you.
1- FMLE, it is an free Adobe product and does a good job.
2- Wirecast, it is an expensive commercial product of very high quality, absolutely necessary if you starting a TV station.

Although red5 is a free product many people prefer to use Wowza Streaming Engine or Adobe Flash Media Server which are commercial software’s and can be quite expensive, the FMS costs $4500 per server. The reason is that the developers of red5 although have created a wonderful system did not spend much time with tutorials and instructions on how to install and manage a red5 server, for this reason if you searching for a red5 server we suggest you pick a web host which specializes on red5 servers and red5 shared hosting.

1- Red5 Servers relatively cheap red5 servers starting at $15 a month.
2- Red5 Hosting, Hosting Marketers, a web host for experienced webmasters, it is the oldest hosting company specialized on Video and media servers, they also offer Wowza Streaming Engine on its shared plans. They have a very experienced customer support and a reputation for going out of their way to help customers. They starting plan with Red5 enabled costs $9.95 a month. Most other red5 hosting companies are resellers of Hosting Marketers.

Red5 is a formidable media server, extremely flexible and has the advantage of being a free product with with many people working on developing it, for now the main version does not yet work with mobiles, if that is what you need we suggest that instead of using the Red5 Pro version to use the Wowza instead.
