    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?

    I’d really appreciate the help.

    What is the name of your company and location?


    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.

    Can you provide more details?


    My company is Network Foundation Technologies. We’re located in Ruston, Louisiana ( Louisiana Tech University). Our web site is

    Here is a link to a demo video player.

    Maybe just give it a try and let me know if you can get it to work.

    Thanks for the info. I see that the NSF is a partner with NFT

    I will give the player a try soon. Unfortunatly I am not in Antarctica to help with your test.
