    Its true that lighttpd is the best for for video because it runs abit faster then apache also it is good because the streaming is setup as default, but apache can also do this streaming function, i have been using it over a year now and is it wonderful, you need to install an addon to apache server for this to work, its called apache_mod_flvx also you can do this for mp4 files too if you also install apache mod_h264_streaming

    hope that helps.

    I would probably say that overall, it is better to stream with Apache than lighttpd. One of the biggest problems with lighttpd is that it doesn't support multiple threads. This means that for servers that have multiple cores, lighttpd won't scale across them. Apache, however, can. For very powerful servers, it is actually better to stream with Apache (even though lighttpd is faster) as it can use more of the system's resources than can lighttpd. For smaller servers or VPS's, though, lighttpd is probably a better way to go.

    I am using lighttpd but everyone says that nginx is the faster way for video streaming. Is that true?

    Not necessarily. Nginx has a smaller footprint than lighttpd so it is lighter on the server. But, it isn't faster. There is also less security in nginx streaming than lighttpd.

    Hi,

    I am now on the process of transferring my whole site in a dedicated server, and ask my hosting company to install lighthttpd on the server, i just to know if this will work if my account has a differrent domain, (used as video server) but now i will put all the files in once server but of course it will hosted only in one dedicated server but different cpanel, my question is this will work on my server, i have 3 domains where my videos are uploaded, and my dedicated server has 5 IP address as mention by my webhosting company

    Ok, as i mention earlier i have a 3 domain, remote server used for my videos, is there any idea how lighttpd work without making the 3 accounts a VPS, because that domains now will be hosted on same New Dedicated server, because i dont know if my hosting company will do that thing for me (make the three account a VPS),
