Looking for VPS with possibly unmetered bandwidth to stream sports event
I want to stream a sports event. I will use nginx and take RTMP as input and stream using HLS. Never done this before.
If the incoming stream bit rate is 600kbps (it's actually variable and can go up 3MBps) and output is at 600kbps then how much bandwidth is required for streaming a 3 to 4 hour event. I need to do this for 3 days so this 3 to 4 hour is for one day only.
Do you think having multicast will help (don't know what it is just saw this name on Google while searching) but I guess that will be expensive!?
I assume 1000 users will watch it (if it's too high then I can reduce it)
Will unmetered bandwidth at 100mpbs be enough? Or 1TB per day bandwidth at 1Gbps be enough?
So how much $ am I looking at?
