<br/>And can you run multiple servers in different cities that can interoperate with each other to send pages...etc?
<br/>
<br/>not fully tested? hmmm I'd probably have to wait and see on that one as there's a few other services offering similar software with SQL or MySQL backends.
<br/>
<br/>I'm going to go with the company that can offer me the most of course though, so all the information I can obtain, the more educated my decision will be.

<br/>So I'm guessing currently the user database doesn't support scripting languages accessing it like they do SQL servers?
<br/>
<br/>Can two servers talk together and work together? I've seen the client and checked it out and it looks kinda like mplayer used to so I have no doubts that it works.
<br/>
<br/>Really if the database doesn't have a way of connecting to it with PHP or ASP then I don't think I'm interested or if two servers can't talk to one another. These are kinda required for what I want to do I guess.

<br/>Thanks for checking us out! please log into one of the fpath sites listed in the links to test.
<br/>
<br/>We do not give out database info until you buy..at the moment the server side is not sql.
<br/>
<br/>The server side works world wide you will not have a problem connecting .

<br/> 1. The database information is something I would have to know before purchasing really. I have to have a method of accessing it from web modules, so if it's MySQL, SQL, or Oracle then we're golden, otherwise I'm pretty sure I'll have trouble connecting to it with PHP or ASP, which I'm sure you can understand.
<br/>
<br/>2. What codec do you use?
<br/>
<br/>3. Great!
<br/>
<br/>4. I'm concerned about the &quot;one server&quot; as I'll be wanting to set this up across the country with the servers interconnected such that a user in Texas on one server can page a user in North Dakota who would be connected to another server in North Dakota.
<br/>
<br/>I want to setup a multi-server company like gamespy,(ex) mplayer...etc because I think there is alot of money to be made in this arena and I've got the financial backing to do it, but would rather utilize pre-existing technology that fits my needs rather than build from the ground up. Saves me time and money this way.

<br/>1.The database is somthing we dont talk about with new customers until they have paid for a package because of security reasons.
<br/>
<br/>2. DirectX with Codec
<br/>3.Yes Admin panel works from anywhere!
<br/>4.One server is fine the faster the better!

I dont think this person was trying to buy a package from us he was just trying o cook up some info to slam us with.
<br/>
<br/>If a company dont have what you like go else where dont slam them on a forum.
<br/>lol whatever dude or your name accesscgibin skldjaf &lt;vti_cgi_bin@hotmail.com&gt;

Both parties look unprofessional in those emails regardless.

Another route? Come now Fpath, you claim to be like MPlayer used to be but you don't support anything they had. MPlayer didn't rely on 1 server box handling the whole system, they were designed for interoperability of several servers. They used an accessible database of real time stats that could be accessed through common scripting means. You can page someone from one server and it would go to another server to reach the person. Hence if their 1 box went down, the whole service didn't go down.
<br/>
<br/>Other services I am/was looking into are Livve.com, SeeMePlayMe, and MPlayerLive.
<br/>
<br/>Had Livve.com not gone down I'm sure they'd at least give me a response that didn't say go another route. Both my communication with SeeMePlayMe and MPlayerLive have been very pleasant and they have provided me with enough detail to make a decision.
<br/>
<br/>I'm sorry, but I don't see how anyone could condone the fpath software at this time. It likes serious server features. It's great for running an example source code like off of <a href="http://www.pscode.com" target="_blank">http://www.pscode.com</a> or something where you get samples of code identical to fpath everyday, but it's just not what I thought it was and it's not even competing in the game.

Seems one sided and anyone who sends me an email with an name like this 7432hwdfaoiduf with no will not get a responce. You wanted somthing we have not fully tested and is not ready.
<br/> I suggested you go another route since you was so keen on telling us in email how you was not into the software.
<br/>So be it..
