We require a user-friendly control panel, administrator control panel and automated services for a multimedia stream hosting website.
The user control panel must have these features:
*Personal contact information display and edit function
*The ability to view stream information on their Windows Media and SHOUTcast streaming such as current listeners, peak listeners, Ban/Unban specific IP addresses of listeners, Disconnecting of selected listeners, Reserved IP Configuration and optional listener authentication.
*Graphical Statistics, Daily, weekly, monthly and yearly of a clients stream. A client should be able to see where there listeners are coming from by country. Top 10 hits from listener IP's to their stream. And how much bandwidth they've used.
*Geo-locking services for Windows Media, this is where the client can choose which countries are allowed to access their stream.
*The ability to automatically add listener slots to their account. User calculates how many slots they require and at what bitrate then they pay for it within PayPal, then the slots are automatically added to their account via the streaming server once payment has completed.
*The ability for the client to choose which method of streaming they require for their Windows Media account, PUSH, PULL and on-demand within their account.
*The ability to automatically change their own Windows Media publishing point if the point is available, first come first served.
*The ability to add a relay to their shoutcast streaming
*Provide an automated file upload feature for on-demand Windows Media streaming, example: on-demand video file(s) uploads directly into the clients Windows Media Services mount point then links are shown in the user panel on how to access their files.
Administrator panel should include:
The ability to automatically cap the clients server storage space to 1GB, we should be able to add more space if they buy more space.
We need to be able to view every customers bandwidth utilization in real-time so we can bill them for overages if required
We need to be able to view if customers are "overstreaming" this is where a client for example buys 10 slots at 32kbps then they decide to stream at a higher bitrate than for what they haved payed.
We need a full list within our control panel of EVERY active customer.
Whoever can provide us with this service will have the option to provide us with further well payed projects.
You'll need experience with:
Windows 2003 Standard Edtion Server
Windows Media Services (streaming)
And you'll certainly need to be able to code.
