About Us

Who we are

Second Streaming was established to provide optimized streaming audio services to users of virtual worlds, primarily Second Life.  Our custom developed streaming media platform is based on a robust Unix/Linux implementation coupled with SHOUTcast, Icecast and Wowza Media Server for media delivery solutions, this enables delivery of a broad range of content to a plethora of client devices.

Based in the United Kingdom our team are all highly experienced with streaming media and most have a background in technology, broadcast or other areas of pro-audio.

Second Life

We entered the virtual worlds space via Linden Lab’s Second Life, initially in 2005, establishing an active business presence in 2006, our aim is simple, provide an affordable, easy to use and highly available streaming audio service. Today our audio streams are relied upon by many hundreds of DJs, musicians, venues, speakers, comedians and more and not just throughout the vibrant landscape of Second Life either as we now serve many customers across OpenSim based grids as well as other virtual worlds.

Why Second Streaming?

Our value proposition is simple, we deliver a highly professional, solid and ultra reliable service with an unparalleled commitment to customer support and all at a competitive price point.  We don’t oversell servers or bandwidth, we’re here when you need us and we won’t get overly technical with you.

Our team work hard to ensure our services are designed to be as easy to use as possible.
