    its my first post on this forum,
    I searched but didnt found anything related with what I want to do.

    So here it is:

    I have a dedicated server with WHM and cPanel 11
    I have a player that support url for streaming video.
    But I dont know how to do.

    The format of streaming video the player accepts is FLV (flash).
    Is there a way to make streaming video using cPanel and FLV files ?

    Thanks everybody who could help or at least read my question.
    :)

    FLV files are just flash video files. You need to create a swf video player that uses HTTP streaming.

    If you streaming, as in live web cam, then you may need a media server, something like http://www.adobe.com/products/flashmediaserver/compare/

    Or you could look into HTTP pseudo-streaming

    You could also look into p2p type stuff this way you can make a direct connection saving webspace, system resources and bandwidth of your server.

    I have the streaming server you've mentioned, but how do you install it on the server under cPanel?

    mod_flvx

    This one site talks about an apache module that will allow you to stream flash.

    http://journal.paul.querna.org/articles/2006/07/11/mod_flvx/

    I also want to know if I can stream flash from my cpanel VPS. Has anybody worked with this module? Will cpanel overwrite additional apache modules during upgrades if I install this?
