What I mean is that the video files she is generating from the dvd camcorder
are huge for just a few minutes of video. Since these files are huge, you
can't realistically view them from the links on the webserver.
Since I am not a video guy, I was wondering if there was a better method to
provide these videos from our webserver.
Is streaming video the way to go? Or some variation of what I have tried ?
I know it can be done as I view video from websites all the time.
Thanks for any ideas ,
