Streaming Media, Gregory C. Demetriades, ISBN: 0471209503

The book proposes you to teach you how to build and implement a streaming system. First, as a software developer, when I read building and implementing a software solution, I usually expect a book about programming. This is not the case, the book proposes to build and implement a system by plugging together components directly off the shelf. I was a little bit disappointed but still it could have been an interesting book. Unfortunately, the book only consists of a catalog of products used in a streaming system without proposing a comprehensible clear picture of how all these components interact together. It looks like:

Chapter on cameras:
 camera X: bla bla bla
 camera Y: bla bla bla
 camera Z: bla bla bla
 
Chapter on encoders
 encoder from company A

and so on...

I am implementing streaming servers for a living and I could not make much sense of this book so do not expect that it will for you if you are looking a book to get introduced to digital streaming.

I want you to find in this blog informations about C++ programming that I had a hard time to find in the first place on the web.
