streaming video in PHP5

P: 28
hi all.. I wanna make a site where every visitors can see a streaming video (in real time, may be like youtube). So, in the same time when the page is loading, the video is playing.
My questions, is it possible to make this streaming video using PHP5? Or I have to learn another language? Does PHP support this?
I don't know where to start this project... Do I have to make some kind of video player in this site?
thanks for your help...

Heya, Momogi.

This is not really PHP's domain, as PHP never directly interacts with the client. Instead, you'll want to create or find a Flash-based video streamer. I hear that the Quicktime component can also handle streaming media, but the Flash version is generally considered to be more universally-compatible.

There are many ready made video players which let u stream flv files just like in the case of youtube..

the flash player is installed by default in the browser using a plugin(automatically downloaded)

you just need to embed a code using
<object width="550" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="somefilename.swf">
<embed src="somefilename.swf" width="550" height="400">
