Media Stream Monitoring Tool | Streaming Media Monitoring Formats List

Earlier this week Dotcom-Monitor announced ServerView Media Stream Monitoring. This technology allows users to monitor a broad range of streaming content from an external “user experience” perspective. In addition to comprehensive data and diagnostic aspects, customizable alerts may be setup for each media stream to continually monitor media performance and availability. Interactive waterfall charts and drill downs amongst the data allow users to locate and repair problems, significantly reducing mean-time-to-repair (MTTR).

In addition to Dotcom-Monitor’s Media Stream Service, a Free Instant Streaming Media Test is also available.

*Note, the names of encoders and decoders do not always match, so there are several cases where the above table shows encoder-only, or decoder-only entries even though both encoding and decoding are supported. For example, the h263 decoder corresponds to the h263 and h263p encoders.
