Closing up 2011 and looking forward to 2012!
Hey Everybody, I thought I would write up a few things to wrap 2011 and get on with 2012 here at FMSGuru.com.
First up, thank you everybody for the visits, compliments, comments and sometimes work that you have brought when coming to check out what we have here. Product sales have improved year after year (so have the products I think) and there are tons of requests for mods and new products altogether. I can tell you that we are working as hard as we can in that area and more. Every little bit and piece that improves this small niche community is really important, so once again, thank you very much.
2011 saw a total of 34 new free video tutorials. That's pretty good at 2.8 per month! Just under one per week essentially.. I plan on improving on that this year for sure. There is so much information to be put out as both Flash Media Server and Wowza Media Server are growing all the time and new techniques get figured out on almost a daily basis.
Just in case you missed the last two tutorials of the year, I managed to get one out on both servers:
Overriding the play() method server side to limit play time with Wowza
Developing server side code on FMS to check if a live stream is available
2011 brought a brand new website too. We're going into the 4th year for FMSGuru.com and it was about time a facelift happened. In conjunction we also released a new product, STi Video Recorder for Wowza Media Server HD Edition v3 , a very cool video recording application that works on Wowza. With those out of the way we can definitely concentrate on more free video tutorials, articles and of course product updates and new products altogether. We have a lot of ideas and a lot of requests coming in on almost a daily basis. We listen to them all so please don't hesitate to ask if we have done or can do something. We probably have done it or are going to!
2012 is going to bring all kinds of new tutorials, articles, product updates and products. I fully expect the community to grow as the demand for this particular technology continues to grow out of control, there has never been a better time to be involved in live media/communication and streaming video. It's amazing.
So stay tuned for some more updates soon!
