    Streamed Video Hosting

    I have a client who wants to build a subscription online training site. This site will be hosting proprietary videos that need to be streamed (vs. downloaded).

    Can anyone recommend a reliable hosting provider that:

    - Supports ecommerce
    - Supports streamed Flash video
    - Provides a way to control user's access to videos (only access what they've purchased)

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    Are you talking about certain web application or web project to be hosted? I guess you need to have programming part to be done, don't you?

    I suppose that you need to shift your search to the VPS server. To stream video you will need to have huge server sources

    Hello,

    I agree that VPS hosting will be a good choice.

    Regards

    I think you'll need a VPS with FFMPEG support.

    You don't need ffmpeg unless you are doing online conversion or encoding formats, it's not necessary to stream videos. You will need to stream over rtmp if you want reasonable protection of your video. For extra protection you can use wowza media servers 'securetoken' or flash media servers swf verification, rtmpe and server side scripting.
    You could also use red5 as an open source alternative.
