    *A 50mb video file in mpeg*

    hi guys,
    i've a 50mb video in mpeg, and i intend to convert it to QT for the web.

    i don't have a streaming server, so what's the best way to show this video online?

    can i compress it using QT Pro? how long do you reckon it'll take to fully load a 50mb file on broadband?

    I don't know the answers to your questions, but I have a question. Why don't you use flv?

    No, you need a SWF video player to playback an FLV...

    But couldn't you use an FLV online, and link to the MPG / QT for the download?

    yeah i could do that! that means, as long as the user has Flash player installed, he will be able to view flv files?
