Stream through most firewalls. Firewalls are special servers that filter information that flows between the Internet and private networks or intranets. Many firewalls are set up by default to block data that isn't from a Web server—data such as a Haihaisoft Smart Streaming. Firewalls can be reconfigured to allow this data into the internet. Alternatively, Haihaisoft Smart Streaming can be configured to stream using the same protocol as Web servers, HTTP and HTTPS.

Stream content with Digital Rights Management. Content that has been packaged using Haihaisoft DRM-X Platform, which is the most secure and powerful DRM solution, can be streamed or downloaded from any type of HTTP server. Haihaisoft DRM-X Platform helps content owners distribute licensed digital media over the Internet with superior quality.

Fast Streaming. A feature of Haihaisoft Smart Streaming that allows for a combination of streaming, downloading, and caching to provide the best user experience. Fast Streaming includes Fast Start, which downloads the first few seconds of the content at as high a bit rate as possible, so the wait to start playing is reduced; Fast Cache, which uses available bandwidth to cache as much content as possible ahead of playback; Fast Recovery, which sends error correction data with the data packets instead of waiting for an error to occur; and Fast Reconnect, which enables the server to automatically restore connections that are lost.

Lower Streaming Cost. As usual, the streaming cost is calculated by the times a video is played. So it will cost a lot if the user plays the same video for many times. But now, through Haihaisoft Smart Streaming, it auto cache data during content playback. It costs only one time no matter how many times the user plays the video. So it will help you save a lot of streaming fee.
