Novice question.

I want to stream some videos via a personal website. However I don't want to use any of the commercial hosting sites like veoh, youtube or anything else.

So, the question is : How can I stream any videos online via a web-host?

If you are using swfs you can use swfobject. If its a video in MP4 or some other format, you can use a embed player in your page like flowplayer or anything similar.

+1 without physical access to a machine / if this is just a bog-standard web host, you are really limited to this sort of thing. – William Hilsum Feb 24 '10 at 23:37

You could use Flash media Server.

Adobe Media Server

Here is a sample

Works well
