    best way to stream video

    Hey all.

    I'm new to flash's capablities of video and I'm looking for some expert advice for streaming video.

    Currently I have about four video files I'd like to stream. They are:
    • 100 - 650 MB
    • 10 - 20 Minutes
    • 640x480
    • WMV Format

    First, what's the best way to bring down the file size for easy download?

    Second, what's the best way to stream it?

    Hi WillStein,

    An easy way is to get Flix Pro to compress the wmv to an flv and create a swf player at the same time. Then you need to upload the flv and swf player to the same directory on your http server. From a web browser hit the swf or the html that loads the swf file.

    You can downlaod a demo version of Flix Pro here http://www.on2.com

    I was looking into flashcom but I don't think it's for me.

    Ideally, sometime in the future, I'd like to embed into like a tv monitor backgroun (and have the movie display in the tv)

    And sometime in the future, I'd like to connect it to a database to display the vid file . . .

    But thats all future plans. For now I'm just looking for the best way to stream it.

    I'm using Adobe Premiere and I go to: "export timeline --> advanced wmv".
    I choose 56k and 700k for the speeds from the preset timelines, but I don't think it's average.
