If you need more information. let me know

how to get this kind of server, how much it will cost. How to set this. Is there any tutorial.

Flash Media Server is Adobe product, its licence depend on the number of users(limitation), you can ask for unlimited users,

Flash Media Encode is free software from Adobe.

JW Player
The world's leading web-based video player makes it easy for you to add H.264/MPEG-4, FLV & MP3 content to your site. Choose the license that meets your needs.

Single - 1 Website ($89) and Double - 2 Websites ($119 - 33% savings!)

System(Server cost) - i don't know

anyone knows an open source option?

Red5 is an open source Flash server that is written in Java and supports:

streaming audio/video (FLV, MP3, F4V, MP4, AAC, M4A)
recording client streams (FLV only)
shared objects
live stream publishing (Sorenson, VP6, h.264, MP3, AAC and more)
It has installers for OSX and Windows. Also, it can be downloaded as a zip file to be used in any OS.

Mammoth is also an open source Flash streaming server that is built with C++ and can run on Windows and *nix OSs.

It can stream all Flash codecs like h263, h264, mp3, vp6, speex, nellymoser, etc.

By using FFmpeg it has has container support for most formats: mov, flv, mkv, mp3 and more.

The server is still in alpha phase but very promising.

If you know any other free and solid alternatives, please share and we'll be happy to add them to the list.
