I have been struggling with this for 2 days. I am trying to get a DVD (personal) to stream on my web site. Here is what I have done so far:
- Converted dvd to .avi files (4 of them)
- Converted .avi file to .flv and .swf files (I have 2 copies of both in different formats)
I have found a TON of utilities to transfer my files to different formats apparently.
Then there is Riva Producer that allows me to FTP the video files (either .FLV or .SWF) to my web server...
These are all fantastic tools, but they are not quite helping me out. I am a beginner at web development and have been trying to use different free tools to post video to a number of different sites. That is where I found DropShots and Jumpcut - two services that allow you to upload video and have it stream.
The problem I am having is that I just want to generate code to my website that when launched or executed, the video will play on-demand and stream, rather than download and play.
*** The website is hosted by Yahoo Small Business.
So, my question, how to do somehow either use my .avi, .flv or .swf files and add to my webserver...then navigate to that page and have a video player waiting for me...when I click Play....it will stream the video rather than download it.
If anyone knows, please help me out. I would really appreciate it!
