HiIf you are just uploading the video and NOT convertingit to a standard format like youtube does to .flv(Flash video)You can do it relatively easily but will get a mixed result due to no standard format.To get a better result like youtube you could convert all the videos uploaded to a standard format like flv or wmv. This would have to be done by the server so you would need full access, to have programs like ffmpeg to do the converting. Converting on the server is not quick depending on the hardware, meaning you would have to cue file conversion the same way as youtube does it else end up having a slow site.The third way is to get you content providers to convert their video which they wish to submit to a standard format on their PC’s before they upload, this is probably the easiest solution but you will need to find some software they can convert their files with.SMIL - maybe useful but depends on the media format.Flowplayer a open source flash video player the site has some useful info on encoding flv using FFmpeg.http://flowplayer.sourceforge.net/ThanksMatt

Thanks for your response.These are quite usefull details for me. I prefer the third way, it is convenience for both side, and i just found a website to help people to free convert their files, it is great, which is http://media-convert.com/.But i think i may spend more money to create my own flash video server hosting, it will cost $5000 for year, i think. because the large plan from the Influxis, it just can allow up to 100 user Simultaneous Connections, and the Bandwidth Allowance just 50 GB transfer / month, so probably i need to create my own one from the Influxix.
