Sounds fair. I've known a number of people use ustream and other services
to good effect. I've also known the systems to have hiccups and not work
well. Hiccups may have been at the service's end, or somewhere along the
way. When there are problems, I tend to think of it as more an
infrastructure issue than with any of the specific streaming services. I've
set up streaming services using both open source (red5) and proprietary
(windows media server) and didn't find any major difference between the
streaming capabilities of either.
