How to add Video to a site

Posted 13 December 2005 - 01:36 PM

I'm looking at adding video instruction for paid subscribers to a site. My site uses cold fusion and already has membership.

1) What is the best approach?
2) Instructors will be creating the videos and sending them in. What file type should they create?
3) What are my bandwidth considerations?

Any help or direction would be appreciated.

1) there is no best approach, there is a best solution for you though.

2) what kind of video? if its a screenshot based tutorial session you are looking for, macromedia captivate is great and bandwidth friendly.

3) what is your target audience? does a majority of them have broadband internet connections? should some of them download the entire movie in a small scaled version of the video first? or should you stream? have you read the new macromedia flash 8 video features? studying many different video formats should get you the answers you need. google 'macromedia flash 8 video' 'divx' 'xvid' 'quicktime' etc.

I suggest you first convert your video to flash, and get the flash to your site.

You can convert your video use Flash Video MX, get Flash video MX at http://www.flash-vid...o_to_flash_web/
