Sorry, this is too little information to even _guess_. What do you
consider a "h264 file"? H.264 Annex B / ES or H.264 in MPEG-TS, or in
MPEG-PS or in MOV/MP4?
How does your distributed file system react when one computer is
missing? Does it reconstruct the data from information on other
computers, does it wait for the missing computer to become available
again, does it just return zeros, random data, or create and I/O error?
