COVE QotD: Do I Have to Have a Flash Streaming Server to Participate?
Stations will need to have access to stream Flash video in order to add local content to COVE (only COVE Pro). This may be through a major CDN such as Limelight or Akamai, servers owned by your station, or servers owned by some other organization your station has a relationship with.
All COVE products include a player that displays video using Flash. Stations implementing COVE Plus and COVE Lite are not required to be able to stream Flash video content. In those cases the streaming is handled by PBS.
