Video on VB, what are the options?

I started ths thread at vb.com:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...83#post2151583

but will continue here.

I am trying to get a grasp on the video possibilities in vb and if there is a solution to what I want to do.

I would like to have possibility to:

- upload video atachments in vb (enabled and working), to my own system, not youtube or similar
- send/stream this inline style to users, something like what is possible to do with the video BB tag for youtube and similar, not just show as a download link.

If this is not possible, then
- upload elsewhere (like ftp) to my system, set up streaming software, display inline as above

I know this would be bandwidth / resource consuming, but do not expect a large traffic on this. It is for technical tutorials.

So what are my options? Suggestions? I have my own dedicated LAMP server.

Here are some tips of on getting .flv video streaming running on Apache: http://flowplayer.org/forum/5/14679

Anyone else interested in video streaming YouTube style from your own server, and eventually vb-integrate this?

Have you thought of VBTUBE?

vbtube.com

that's what I'm using....you can upload, embed and it will start a thread and post a link for users to view it.

You can also create a bbcode for it...

and last but not least it gives the youtube feel

Thanks!

No I was not aware of it / did not find it before.

Still interested in other options to see what there is out there.

Same here...
Would love to see that users don't have to download the file first.

EDIT:

I have found this topic:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=137870

I have created the WMV BB code,
But when i make a posting with a link in it, wrap the WMV tags around it and press save, There are automaticly also wrapped URL tags around the link.

It looks like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Note: I have added a space in the URL tags here to let it show correct.

The embedded player can't find the file because it looks for the file with the tags infront and after it.
However, when i edit the posting, remove the URL tags, and press save again, the BB code works correct.

How do I remove that URL tag without editing the posting.
