[FFmpeg-user] Streaming overseas

I was wondering if anyone had experience streaming 720p ~5000kbit/s
video overseas successfully? If so which protocol did you use?

I'm trying to stream between Stockholm sweden to toronto canada.
Using mpegts over tcp, I sometimes get so many retries that the
bandwith falls below 5MBit/s for many seconds.

The source and destination buffers are 16MBytes

I wanted to try pro-mpeg, but ffmpeg only has it as a send protocol
not receive (or I missed something)

I can't use HLS/MPEG-Dash which would be my first choice for reasons
at the source I can't get into.

My 2 choices I think
1- Spawn an amazon or whatever cloud instance as close as possible and
grab the stream THEN convert to HLS and send it overseas

2- Use another protocol I don't know....

Thanks for the input
