Hello,
Does anybody know about a video stream server that
serves up HTML pages with links to video files, and then serving out
those video files.

http://www.youtube.com/ seems to match your specification pretty well.

Fredrik,
Thank you for your reply.

If I use the YOUTUBE.com server , I would have to connect to THEIR
computers whenever a user will come to MY website to play a video
stream on MY website. Is it so?

Regards,

no, your user's browser would have to connect to their computers:

but I think you're missing the point; you need to provide more
information about your specific requirements than just "a HTML
page that links to a video file". like, say, in what way this
is related to Python, what software you're using today, what
kind of videos we're talking about, etc.

The most important thing now is how to add a support for video files.

As to kind of videos, it is not too much important because I can allow
user to upload/play a certain kinds of videos only or transform some
kinds of videos into the correct types
what way this is related to Python,
I love Python so I would like to implement video support in Python.
That is how it is related to Python only

This is not really a Python question -- it's an HTML question. You need to
spend some time Googling for <objectand <embedtags which allow you
shove a video as part of a web page. Then you can use your Python web site
to create the appropriate HTML.

I'm not sure if this is too low-level, but there's always the Flumotion
platform [1]: an open source streaming solution based on Python,
GStreamer and Twisted, and there's a Java applet for viewing in Web
pages (I'll save my rant about Flash for another time). This PyCon 2005
presentation slide takes you to the key points:

http://www.flumotion.net/doc/flumoti...html/img4.html

Of course, this is more about streaming than just video uploads and
downloads, but if you're considering streaming (or if anyone else
reading is), it's probably worth looking into.

Hi Paul,
I checked your video strem server.It seems interesting for me.
Can you please answer these questions?
1. What is a price?
2.Do you support FLV format files, if not, why?
3. How many users do already use the server?
4. Can you name any of your customers ?

Thank you
Lad,

It's not my software, I'm afraid. I just read enough of Planet GNOME to
have become aware of the activities of various people, including people
who work at Fluendo [1] - the principal developers of that software.
Can you please answer these questions?
1. What is a price?
I guess you can get the different components at no cost from the site I
mentioned [2].
2.Do you support FLV format files, if not, why?
3. How many users do already use the server?
4. Can you name any of your customers ?
You would need to ask Fluendo all these questions. I was just telling
you what I've read about myself.
