Streaming Movies





ChunkyBustout
Hello all,

Does anyone know of a way to stream a movie without using too much bandwidth? I've heard of multicasting, unicasting, sdp but I'm not familiar with any of it. (No porn or anything like that.)

I would like to stream movies, under the Creative Commons license, from my site. This is not an issue legally but I don't want to have my bandwidth used up by a few users viewing my streams. I know just placing them on my site with links will allow them to download them but I heard streaming could possibly use less bandwidth. Even if I don't host them at frihost, I would like to know how to have them displayed in a window to view.

i don`t know much about this as i never needed to do such stuff, but you can try out real player. The .rmvb, .ra, .rm formats are simply astounding. I convert all of my tv shows in rmvb format. Picture this, one episode of stargate atlantis in avi ocuppies 300 mb, and in .rm only 60 mb Smile
The real converter allows you to convert any movies for almost every possible connectiion for streaming. I think this is what you might be looking for.....
