Welcome the the WHT. I suppose you need to chose web application first. Then once you have chosen the one you will need to find web hosting solution for that. If you are getting started I suppose shared web hosting account will be fine for you. Some (not every) web hosting companies allow to do that
I want to know what I need to do to run a video streaming server.Do I need to go to a school and if so, do u know of any school that can teach me how to run a flv media server..?
Forums will be your school. I assume you need just get started and then as far as you go you will ask question. Maybe that would be useful to find morte narrow specialized forums for this kind of the tasks
You could also find a managed dedicated server provider or server management company that would be willing to help you set one up.

You will need to find an application to do so. Once you have found that you will need to find an extremely qualified server. It will obviously need to be fast enough to stream videos without a buffer. And you will want to make sure you have enough bandwidth because streaming any audio or video will require a great deal of bandwidth. I know FDC (http://www.fdcservers.net) offer alot of great bandwidth deals. You may be paying a bit more for them but I know first hand their custom service and technical support is amount the best.
I always suggest to anyone who is looking for a dedicated server to search other websites. You can use WHT which is a great tool or try search engines such as Yahoo, Google and even Bing. Best of luck!
