Chapter 3. Using RealMedia > Creating a Server

Creating a Server

What’s a RealServer and where do you get one? Although the system might not yet be as ubiquitous as setting up residential phone service, it’s out there. We’re going to tell you how to get (and use) it.

For serving on-demand files, you can use either the RealServer for real-time streaming of on-demand files or any Web server for HTTP/Progressive streaming. For live stream authoring, you must use the RealServer, which is available for Unix (Linux, FreeBSD, and so on) and Windows NT/2000. For the purposes of the Step-by-Step tutorials in this chapter, you’ll be using the RealServer for both live and on-demand.
