Hi, I recently came about your music streaming software, and really liked it. I work at a volunteer ambulance organization and to meet state requirements must hold training meetings. If you miss training, you must watch a video. We were planning on purchasing a server to hold these videos so people on our network can watch them. The way your music server is setup would be perfect for our video streaming...do you know of any software that is basically a video version of slimserver?

Thank you

Alex

You likely don't need any sort of streaming software. You could just present a file share to users containing descriptively titled files, then they click on the file, it buffers in the video player associated with that sort of file and away they go.
