I've got:

  • Linux box with public DNS name
  • apache
  • web development skills
  • tons of video files to broadcast

I want to create simple web page, which contains some plugin that shows my files to whoever wants to see them on the web. What free tools should I use (server streaming side and HTML side)? If I am asking in a wrong place, where should I go?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Take a look at a few of the open source video players like JW player, OSFLV, Flowplayer, etc. They might give you some ideas.

not really that helpful. also, if you're going to suggest software, always include the links to them. – studiohack May 7 '11 at 4:51
Those are open source video players. I also added links to save you the trouble of visiting Google. – Xenoactive May 8 '11 at 1:20
