I have been struggling with this for 2 days. I am trying to get a DVD (personal) to stream on my website. Here is what I have done so far:
- Converted DVD to
.avifiles (4 of them)
.swffiles (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
.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 videos 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 for 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 is, how to do somehow either use my
.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 should stream the video rather than download it.
Is there any other way to do this without buying more software? I would really just like to upload my
swf files to my web server and then use HTML code to open a flash player to play/stream my video.
