    I was involved in a streaming video project last year, and as a result got to play with most peoples streaming technology. Whilst Streaming MPEG 1 over the internet can be done, you will need a high bandwidth connection to the server and specialist client and server software. The software we used to do this is called MediaBase from SGI http://www.sgi.com/solutions/broadband/kasenna.html. We found this only to be suitable for delivering MPEG 1 video over a LAN due to the high bandwidth requirement (for a decent looking video at 320x240 you are going to need to encode it at about 1.5 Mbit/s).

    For streaming I would suggest using RealMedia http://www.realnetworks.com out of all the methods I had the most success with this one. Or if you have the time you can experiment with Microsoft's ASF streaming format.

    If you just decide to have a file for download i recoment recompressing it using either quicktime with the sorensen codec, or avi with the MPEG 4 codec.
