This 100k again... Apart from the fact that, even for the free 100k units, you still have to track them, which apparently is an all but simple task: as I asked repeatedly on the list (without ever getting an answer), what makes a unit? what counts in the famous 100k list? if I install a transcoding mixer application on a server, does that count as 1 unit? or do I have to count a unit each time I attach a user to the mixer, i.e., whenever I allocate an encoder/decoder? or anything else? any answer, which I still haven't received, would put that 100k in a different perspective. The only info I could find around was related to an even more obscure subscription vs. title-by-title distinction that confused me even more.
