    Hello All,

    I have the following scenario ,i have a demand for streaming solution.
    The demand scenario as follow need to provide 10 machines that will get there feed from some USB source 512Kbit/s and will broadcast to Internet stream those feeds.

    my solution for that acquiring one powerful server Intel SR2500 based equipped with 16Gb + 4 1G NIC install it with Esxi install on it 10 guest host Ubuntu Linux each using VLC for streaming.

    now my issue is i know that Esxi doesn't support usb mapping to virtual machines, obviously i need to use USB over Ethernet/network additional server.

    My question does anyone knows any USB server/client product that support Linux and proven to works with VLC?.

    Another question ,presented scenario is there another better solution that i can think of?.

    Please advice
