Reader review(s):

Very disappointing if you're looking to implement streaming, March 13, 2003
I had been anxiously awaiting this book, preordered it from Wiley. It arrived today, I'll probably send it back tomorrow.

If you're looking to learn how to shoot video, how to encode, or how to physically build and assemble the components of a computer to run encoding software (Totally out of place in a book of this type), it's probably OK.

I also felt like I was constantly reading promotions for the products of various companies, rather than an unbiased discussion of technologies and options.

The one thing I really wanted, information and resources on implementing streaming media servers, was nearly nonexistent. No significant discussion of the issues involved with implementing Windows Media Server, Darwin (Quicktime), or Real, no info on planning your bandwidth or simultaneous connection needs, nothing on sizing servers appropriate to anticipated needs... and way too much very basic stuff (i.e., explaining what a domain name is.)

All in all, a huge disappointment, particularly coming from Wiley, who has long had a reputation for high-quality, in-depth technical books.

Great book to get started, very informative, April 8, 2003
I thought the book was very informative and had many resources for me to get started. My company was able to get a full overview on how to build an encoding system, how to encode, use the video camera for shooting video for the Internet, as well as many other resources from servers, encryption, storage, video editing and much more. It had many good resources for me to contact while getting started. I highly recommend the book for those who want to start developing a streaming media system.
