Push or Pull?

When configuring Windows Media Encoder or Microsoft Expression encoder; there are two connection methods.


Using a Push

  • Setup is very simple
  • The connection to NetroMedia aquisition servers is started by the Encoder
  • Using a Push you can broadcast from any location any time
  • See the following FAQ to Configure your Encoder for a Push


Using a Pull

  • Is recommended for long duration broadcasts (longer than 2 hours)
  • NetroMedia aquisition servers constantly try to "pull" content from the Encoder
  • Setup requires a Port Forward configured on your router (Default port of 8080)
  • Setup requires an exception in your firewall
  • Setup requires a Static IP address or use of a Dynamic DNS service
  • See the following FAQ to Configure your Encoder for a Pull
