How much bandwidth do I need?

It depends on your viewership. If you don't know your viewership yet or you have not streamed before, than you can follow these simple rules:

1. the average viewing time for a video is between 2 and 5 minutes per view
2. for feature length movies, TV series and live streams: the average viewing time per connection may be between 5 and 15 minutes.

There is a chance that your content and your viewership is different and that your audience's consumer habits are different, making your average view time significantly higher.

Here is an example with an average 10-minute view time by using the video minutes package included in the Video Power service subscription:
An average of 10 minutes per view will give you 833 views per day on average with a 250k VM package per month.
An average of 5 minutes per view will give you 1,666 views per day on average with a 250k VM package per month.
