For our school district the teachers use Discovery Education Streaming
formally United Streaming. I don't know what the costs were because its
hosted at the ISD. They host the server and synch to Discovery servers
at night so its faster then using the internet because all the schools
have fiber ran connecting back to the ISD.

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

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
