Note that all on demand accounts include true streaming support for all major formats. The Streamhoster service is month-to-month, with no contract term and no setup fees.

Please try the instantly activated free trial, which requires no billing information, to see for yourself.

Complete Format support

Support all formats now, or support one now, change to another video format later if necessary. Streamhoster on demand streaming accounts provide full streaming support for Flash, Windows media and QuickTime formats. Including support for the most recent versions of each format (i.e. H.264, Windows media video 9, VC-1, etc.). You can choose between true streaming, progressive download and file download links for each file in your account.


The Streamhoster network is multi-homed, using multiple-premium transit providers. A network design required to achieve high performance video playback. All streaming accounts are fully bursting, ensuring that your viewers will start watching video as fast as is possible, period. Streamhoster will never be the "bottleneck".

Streamhoster maintains substantial free capacity at all times, to ensure network and system resources are amply available to clients. Beware of other hosting providers using under-powered networks while over-selling beyond their network capacity. Your organization and viewers deserve better. Please setup a trial account to confirm the performance of our service (note that download speed limitations of your Internet connection can result in poor playback performance)

Virtual Folders

All on demand streaming accounts include Virtual Folders. Create a web page based view of any folder in your account. You can define permissions for each Virtual Folder, so you can decide whether a guest/visitor can upload files to your account, stream files, download files, delete, etc. You can require user/passwords, IP address matching and more.

The Virtual Folders feature is a useful tool that allows you to present and receive content with others.

Account Features

All on demand streaming accounts include a centralized control panel with administrative, billing, and streaming account management for all services with Streamhoster.

Manage files via FTP or firewall friendly HTTP upload through the Streamhoster control panel. Get links for each file, including direct links and embed code, through the file manager. Monitor activity with reports, detailing activity for each file in your account.

Optional Security add-on

An optional Security Token add-on is available for clients requiring strong content security. If your business model requires controlled access to streams and/or downloads, the Security Token add-on is recommended. This add-on is designed to be completely transparent to viewers.

The add-on can be added to any on demand or live broadcast streaming account for +$50/month. Once added, you can define a section of your account as "secured" and only links to "secured" files with a valid token will be granted access. Using a simple script call from your web site (i.e. PHP, ASP, PYTHON, PERL, etc.), you can retrieve a valid token in real-time. This add-on will offer protection for Flash streaming, Windows media streams, all progressive downloads and file downloads.

If interested, please contact sales@streamhoster.com and request the add-on be added to your account.
