It’s expensive being a full-time student. Average annual tuition costs for college ranges from $10,000 to $40,000. And that figure doesn’t even include the nearly $1,200 you might need to fork over for textbooks, software, and other materials. The bright side? You can get a lot of great student discount on software. Many students who want to develop projects with live video streaming capability need Free Media Server.

Just students? Academics or trainers also may not have enough budget to own costly software with full price. Additionally, academics might need such software for the term project, graduation project, master study, or doctoral study assignments of their students. Furthermore, meetups or communities composed of technology fans also need such software licenses for their training activities or proof-of-concept studies.
