    I have a question.

    I followed step 4 step to this tutorial http://www.howtoforge.com/video_streaming_lighttpd_flowplayer_p2 .

    Ther is one step with creating 2 new folders (/var/videos/incoming and /var/videos/flv).

    So I cant understand, how this should work, if I include the flv video into the flash player, because the files are outside the documentroot (/var/www).

    Please help me.

    It's up to you which methods you want to give your users to upload their content (e.g. anonymous FTP, upload through an HTML form, etc.).

    If you want to use PHP, take a look here: http://www.tizag.com/phpT/fileupload.php

    Thank you.

    But I want to upload the videos over a PHP-script in a directory outside the /var/www (I use lighttpd).

    Like in this tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/video_streaming_lighttpd_flowplayer_p2

    Ther will create a dir named /var/videos/incoming.

    How can I upload a file over PHP in a directory outside the document-root (/var/www)?
