We ahve a number of avi files on a webserver that need to be downloaded to
be viewed. We would like to skip the step of downloading the video file.

I have been able to convert those files into ram files. Is there anyone
with background on setting up a Streaming Video server?

Does any one know the advantages to using an actaul streaming video server
compared with just linking the ram files from a web server other than the
files cannot be downlaoded?
