Live video streaming in Costa Rica (especially in outlying areas to SJO) represents unique challenges. Unreliable internet, low bandwidth, high latency, climate/humidity issues, power grid delivery, etc.. will have a negative impact on video streaming. After 1.5 years evaluating/testing various streaming technologies GeckoTech has deployed a live video feed for Jaco’s most recognized restaurant. This stream leverages the ubiquity of Adobe’s flash players as installed on most of today’s desktop, laptops and mobile devices. The live video stream http://www.losamigosjaco.com/webcam is available and active during the restaurant’s normal operational hours. The stream has been “fine tuned” to ensure maximum uptime and quality given the constraints imposed by the Costa Rican’s internet service providers. To some, the the solution may seem quite trivial, but deploying a system capable of unattended operations and recovery on the local Costa Rican Data network was no small feat. Check it out, and give us your feedback/comments.
