Just thinking about my next project for College and one thing that I think I need to look at is 
video streaming.

Currently we have a server with a big HDD that people save clips on as AVI's and this is mapped to 
the users via Samba. This is OKish for inside college but when they are outside of college they have 
no access to it and as well allow external access to Moodle I'd like to be able for staff to embed 
the clips into moodle so they have the same access inside or outside of college.

Has anyone done this sort of thing before & if so what did you use. I have looked at the Darwin / 
Open Source Streaming Server from apple [1] but don't want to start reinventing the wheel if people 
have found something easier to setup / use
