Now I'm thinking of making it handle LIVE videos.
I'm not familiar with signalR, but I do know it can broadcast live streams of data to many users.
This is the scenario I want to implement: Professor Ludwig Von Drake has a student using a video-camera of his lecture. The video-camera is attached to the student's PC. As the video progresses, students on the other side of the state can view it on their
own PC's, assuming they are viewing the correct webpage.
In fact, 20 professors could be broadcasting their lectures simultaneously using our website, but to different audiences (perhaps an asp session variable would distinguish what each audience sees).
This probably would be a burden on the server, might use up a lot of bandwidth, and I don't even know if SignalR (which I have not studied yet) is the right answer to this.
But anyone who can answer yes or no, and then point me to appropriate documentaion, has much improved US/Quebec relations (that is a joke, I don't live in Quebec). Thanks.

No. SignalR streams JSON messages and can't be used for this purpose.

take a look at YouConf on www. codeproject. com
remember however, there are service charges related to Azure, so you may want to host everything mentioned in the article locally.
