Hi i am interested in integrating Axel downloader to my live stream plugin.

I have a server that stream on demand content through my plugin... but i believe using AXEL i can accelerate this so users can stream my content without problem.. currently some complain that its slow and lagging.. its not form server end as others can stream it fine.

Can axel help me in this case ?

please advice
I'd suggest testing it on a link first. I Believe Axel is more for file sources than streamed content. Keep in mind, I'm not sure if its on an actual repository anywhere yet. You can try using SendTo Axel to test a link to see how it does.

I think they also got some project going on for streamed stuff, but I haven't looked into it yet.

If it's live or pre-recorded streaming then likely not.. can you multi-thread a stream?

Also, Axel isn't ready for prime time yet.. test it out on your end, or put it in as an option to enable and making sure users know it's a beta feature - I'm doing this in Ic*f*lms
