Upstream bandwidth is the limiting factor for how many simultaneous
streaming clients one may support. I was just talking about seek
performance over http. Because the client has to do multiple seeks
to converge on the byte offset of the designed temporal location,
round-trip latency is the dominant factor for seeking.
