Flash streaming software costs appx. $4000 (ed. pricing). You also need =
a Windows or Linux server. You could always find a hosted solution well.

Options are on this page: =

WMV streaming is cheaper (software is free, you just need a server). WMV =
streams can play on a Mac (flip4mac.com free plugin for Quicktime) =
although Flash is definitely the way to go if money is no option.

Many sites (like youtube) use progressive downloads instead of =
streaming. This is just a video file on a regular web server. But for =
large content live movies you definitely need to stream.
