Howto set up a streaming server?
Hello all! I've been using Debian Sarge linux for less then a year. I made a server setup with apache, php and mysql using the nice tutorial "The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge (3.1)" and also got samba working. This was almost easy.

Now, I want to broadcast pre-recorded video from a hd or a dvd to a small audience. I've searched but didn't find a clear way to do it.

I could really use some help on installing and setting up a streaming server (vls?...), creating .pls files (how do I get the link to view the emission?), etc. Is there a way to broadcast directly to a web page?

Can anybody help or give orientation?

To Setup a streaming server

I need your advise in setting up a streaming server.

One of my client who is running a TV company and now interested in making a website, where the public could view his TV Programs via the website.

TV company is telecasting its program in two different countries.

Now the TV company want us to make a website seperately for two different countries with the same functionalities and in different language.

We are going to develop the website in PHP/MYsql

For streaming, TV Company has suggested the following approach

TV Company will convert all the TV Programs into a web enable format FLV by using FFMPEG, which we have to read and do it and for which the following server setup has been identied

1) Two Seperate storage server(public server) for two different countries, where in conversion takes place in different places for two different countries and placed in different places.

2) My Webserver through streaming technique will read the converted FLA files and display it in the website by the concept of streaming, based on the country from which user is trying to browse the site.

Let me know the suggested approach is good and which company should I need to rely on in getting the server setup configured for us.

I am a newbie to video streaming. I like to setup a video streaming in the following manor. iPod Touch's camera streams video to wifi home router, then be able to bring up a web page on any computers on-site or off-site over the internet to view the live video from the iPod camera. To make things easier at first, I can setup a local network with a server to try everything. If there are existing solutions out there for something similar to what I want to do, but using a webcam on a PC rather than iPod, I can start from there too.
I have seen videos on youTube doing the exact thing I am looking for but using an Android phone. However, there was no details at all how it was done and what components are needed.
