    Stream wmv files from a website

    A friend of mine has some wmv files that they would like to stream of their website and they have asked me for a simple solution. However I have no real clue when it comes to websites so I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction.

    If you actually want to stream the wmv files you'll need a windows streaming server (Microsoft Windows Media - Streaming from a Web Server). Just placing them on a webserver will allow most clients to do a progressive download of the media - leading to a similar end result, but with the disadvantage (from a content protection perspective) of easily allowing the user to obtain a copy of the video (streaming is no real protection from a tech savvy end user).

    Perhaps the easiest solution would be to use a third party host? Perhaps just convert the videos and upload to vimeo.com or a similar streaming host?
