    I've been looking into using Flash to stream video and at the moment I'm leaning towards the Flash Communications Server for this type of thing. However it won't be everyone's cup of tea. For example, you really have to own Macromedia Flash and know how to use it. If you do, Flash has some compelling advantages over other technologies.

    Another option is Real's streaming server. I've never used it myself but I hear good things about it. The disadvantage (IMO) is that Real is struggling as a format and I don't see it retaining its popularity long-term.
