ClickView loads lots of different video clips into its library in divx format. This library is then accessed through a client application which lets you pick what video you want to play. When you play it it is streamed ondemand chapter by chapter from the server to the client PC, this is pausable rewindable etc.
If you want to use these resorces on a machine when it is not connected to the network there is an option in the client app to download them locally and play them from there.
I posted this information here in this same thread: Media Server for School
Just to be clear the product that I am talking about is this one: ClickView - the digital video solution for schools

I don't suppose anyone has a rough idea of the cost of ClickView do they (without me having to contact ClickView and then be hounded by a sales rep eager to get my sale .. lol)
Scrap that .. found the pricing page .. ClickView - the digital video solution for schools
we use eStream from PlanetDV
Planet eStream v5 - The complete digital media streaming and archiving solution
We're able to :
upload content we've created
upload DVDs from suppliers
schedule TV recordings
attach resources to videos e.g. PDFs, Powerpoint files etc.
Material can be tagged for Key Stages; we put 18 on for video that is only to be played by a teacher.
Content can be chaptered so that if, for example, an English teacher only wanted to show from 10:51 in thru to 12:25 on a video then they can go straight to 10:51 and stop at 12:25.
Playlists can be created.
Video can be streamed to our website, digital signage etc as single streams or sent as a multicast across the school site.

Just to clear up some confusion - Clickview Live can stream 6 separate sources -they could be all DVDs or all TV stations or a mixture of both. The user can control (stop/start/pause etc) the DVD player from a viewing computer.
Any composite source (eg a video camera) can be plugged into the thing.
