ok, i have installed ffmpeg + mplayer +flv and all other codecs in my dedicated box and even converted a sample video to flv. but how to i play the video in the clients browser? should i call mplayer from php.
just cant seem to understand this. i am planning to start a video website
Any help or suggestions here would be more than helpful
can someone please help me? my question is would ffmpeg alone enough if we run a youtube like clone.
what is the use of mplayer, flvtool2?
what video player i need (free one) to play flv files in my site.
i am absolute n00b with video and other stuff. Thanks
Maybe you should do a bit of research instead of asking vague question. There's plenty of information found on the net about this already.
BTW, you need quite a bit of knowledge to successfully run a "youtube like clone". Startup can be painful be. I know --- I own just such a site. Though we developed all of the workflow software internally --- maybe you can find a pre-developed package somewhere.
On a side note, why a youtube clone? Aren't there plenty out there already?
