I’m a software developer from the United States. My company has developed a new video streaming technology. We’ve managed to get testers from 6 of the 7 continents, but we’d like to make it 7 of 7. I’m trying to find someone who currently lives in Antarctica to try it out.
Does anyone here currently live or work in Antarctica?
Could anyone refer me to someone from Antarctica who has an Internet connection?
Video streaming may or may not work… depends on how you’re doing it. Stuff like Youtube is typically do-able, but if it involves high bandwidth, installing a proprietary software package, or uses a port other than 8080 or the usual HTTP/Internet surfing ports then maybe not.
A lot of the limitations are because of the very limited bandwidth and also security concerns. Specialty video streaming, like teleconferencing, is sometimes available — but there may be a hole in the firewall created just for that (or else across a VPN), and it often soaks up all of a station’s bandwidth, so it’s usually reserved for important meetings or medical consultations.
