    Flash Media Streaming Server or equivelent

    My portfolio site will include my animation reel and I am trying to understand if I need a host who offers just streaming video (& who might that be?) &/or is a Flash Media Streaming Server a better idea?
    I am mostly concerned with the unauthorized downloading and repurposing of my content.
    Any thoughts?

    ps I can make a webpage/flashpage but that doesnt mean I know anything! about hosting ect- you guys are speakin' greek to me!

    I don't think you really need to be looking at a streaming server. It sounds like you just need to embed your portfolio clips into the flash site. This is probably the safest way as opposed to just having an embedded WM/quicktime player where the source file can be found easily. You'll also want to put a watermark overtop the video just in case someone goes to the length of recording their screen.

    Essentially you just need a host that has decent bursting bandwidth as it is going to need some fast load times when someone visits the site.

    And for the media streaming you do not need to have dedicated server or VPS at all. You need to have shared web host with support of this feature. And that is also the way to save some money

    Try 1 of the biggies or SOLID host's like GoDaddy, HostGator, Heart Internet, Liquid Web, 1and1. Or even look on WHT for a host.

    Ask around, we cant do all the work you

    Most places will let you stream flash with no concern, but vidio streming is monitored, so you could end up going with a specialist host.

    But like i said, you got to look around.

    Personally we cannot do all the work, We cannot say, Oh go with xx or xx or use alternatives like xxx, The OP needs to have the last say to whom-ever he/she wants to host with

    We can give our input and recommendations, about all!

    @OP, These are just flash scripts correct?

    This should be suitable in a shared environment

    Do you have any projectories with traffic? Reason why is flash, streams, high quality = alot of usage.

    I would be putting thumb to paper that shared is all you need at this time, Would you have a budget in mind?

    I doubt I will be a high traffic site. I would use it mainly to apply for jobs and allow curious students to see my work

    Right, It probably would of been best though this is not for me to say.

    As I said before, If this is the case a genuine shared hosting account should be suitable for your needs. Nothing more and nothing less!

    There are many and I mean many webhosting services around, Trying have a squiz in the Shared offers section and taking some of those webhosts and doing some research on do your digging before actually committing to anything to save the hassles of being 'Stung'

    Good Luck

    Thanks for the link
    so many top 10 lists & recommendations have the flavor of being paid advertising and its tiresome trying to weigh through to find someone you can trust.

    Top 10 sites are full of fake reviews and affiliates, You as a client are depicted from genuine reviews to fake reviews just to gain the site owner some cash payments for your signup.
