Does GoDaddy provide video conversion servers? How can I confirm mine exists?
Posted on 2009-02-14
My coder claims he got me a Godaddy video FLV conversion system for my site. The conversion works, but I have reason to believe, from some of his behavior, that he may be being dishonest about some of the aspects.
1 - He claims he got a dedicated video conversion server for me from Godaddy. I have reason to suspect, however, that this may just be a machine on his workroom floor, nothing to do with Godaddy. Can I confirm this?
He made us pay him $4500 for it. What he doesnt know, is that before I worked with him, I had created an FLV server myself, that was a dedicated machine in my room. I used Sothink FLV conversion server software. Sothink has a banner watermark for unregistered versions.
I had mine registered, so it was clean. But ! His version is unregistered and has the 'Sothink Unregistered' banner watermark.
Now, there is no way, a legitimate "Godaddy Flash server" still has an unregistered watermark banner on it.
So, I highly suspect him taking us for $4,500. Another EE query I did suggested his server was just a solution.
Is there a way for me to contact anyone to confirm my suspicion or satisfy my worry. Could there be a clue in his ASP code, as to the locale of the server. I know where he lives, so can I confirm the physical location of the server? Where is the location of Godaddy?
He has sent me an electronic receipt, that appears legitimate
How should I address this all?
How would you confirm the legitimacy of these claims?
