    ok lets just say i want to stream a video thats like 5mb. and my web host won't let me upload more than 2mb files. is there a way i could like put it on my ftp or something and still stream it or like put a code that lets me stream it from someone elses site.

    I beleive that real media allows you to use split files.
    ie:
    take "film.avi", split into 5 (1mb each) parts, convert each to a .rm file, and then in "film.ram" have
    Code:
    film1.rm
    film2.rm
    film3.rm
    film4.rm
    film5.rm
    I cant back this up as I've only ever done it with music/audio, but its all real media, so video's should follow the same trend.
