I am new to streaming media.
I mean, using them in the internet is simple, but I want to put some audio and video extracts on a web page.
I couldn't really find a beginner guide, does anyone have a link?
As far as I know, your web server has better to be prepared for it (and I think I've seen hosting firms excluding streaming content in their feature list).
I only got a standard linux web hosting with 500MB of space and php and mysql and still hope I could serve a few audio extracts and videos for a not that big number of visitors without problems.
Otherwise I think I'll have to serve it from another source like youtube or so - would you possibly rather recommend that?
But I'd not really like everyone to find the videos on youtube.
Not that they were bad or offending, I just don't want to take part in today's habit of sharing all these little uninteresting details with people who are even not related to my subject.
I'd be thankful for any input on that!
