Hi! First I wanted to ask the devs directly via email@example.com but then I saw that you guys also have a discourse forum, and then I thought “Oh nice I will just ask here because some people might have the same question one day”
I am building a social network like instagram. Therefore I also want to have live streams like Instagram has (1:m). Also duo streams like instagram has (m:m). I also want to enable content creators to stream gaming like on Twitch. And of course I want to enable my users to make private (video) phone calls to each other 1:1. For moderation reasons I also need to record public streams. As I saw openVidu offers everything of that!
Since I won’t earn much money, but have high usage, I need a very cheap solution. Therefore I can’t use Cloudflare Stream or Mux, since they are very expensive. They are not suited for a use case with much user generated traffic with little money.
is openVidu cheaper than Mux, agora, CloudflareStreams and wowza? I can’t understand the openvidu core pricing -
Can someone maybe explain the pricing to me? E.g Live streams are always 720p 30fps. And I want to record & store externally all public streams; it’s a twitch live stream. one is streaming and the others just watching.
How much minutes of live-streaming do I get at openvidu-pro for $1? At Cloudflare/Mux I get 1000 minutes, which is very little. Only ~166 users could live stream for an hour for $1. That’s too expensive for me. How many minutes would I get at openVidu?
thanks a lot in advance and sorry for that dumb questions!
