Good stuff, Terence. We have teachers who increasingly want to access video streaming for their classroom, and those questions come up on a regular basis.

Thanks Rick. In my opinion, video is one of the most tricky areas of the online world. It helps to first define our objective before using video. Depending on the goal, a video solution could be as simple as a webcam discussion or as complex as a full feature. In addition, there are so many codecs and formats to consider and making a "quality" video takes substantial time and resources. I'm glad you found this resource helpful.
