'mini you-tube' like application/component?

P: n/a
I have project where they'd like the ability to have web site visitors
upload a video file, and then have the server convert it (ideally to FLV)

Basically, what You Tube does, but on a much smaller scale.

The two main issues I see are:

- uploading huge files
- converting it server side.

Is there a .net-centric component/product out there that can handle this?
They'd like it running in 2 weeks which is, well, crazy, but if there's
already something on the market that can handle this, it might be doable.

For one part you are in luck. Just got notified about the following:

Are you still using FFMPEG executable to perform video conversion for
your web application? Are you working on video server project similar to
Youtube, Google video, MetaCafe or DailyMotion? Forget commonly used
ffmpeg solution. Here is totally free FFLIB, a ffmpeg based video
conversion NET 2.0 library. Linux and PHP versions coming after some
time ...

BTW I am in no way connected and have not used the library.
