    You would view that movie with any player that'll play it. DivX, Flow Player, they all have online code generators that work with direct URL's to stream it... Remember this is step one.

    That HD movie would be perfect as an AVI here: http://labs.divx.com/WebPlayerCodeGenerator

    By the way, the pUT.iO to S3 thing...it's only about storage limits and using pUT.iO in a public way.

    Do you not understand that streaming a video IS downloading it..? If your home connection is imcapable of downloading at gigabit speeds, YOU CANNOT. Just think about it..how am I going to download at gigabit speeds JUST because the server is capable of it? It takes At least 2 to do a file transfer of any type, and the speed of the slowest peer is the cap.

    Do you not understand that there's still a major difference between streaming and downloading? I can start watching that stream within seconds but it would take 45 minutes to download.

    Come on now, we were doing good for a second, I don't want to break this down into half steps.

    Whatever the case, the point is, it doesn't matter how much the server is pushing to you if your home connection cannot make use of it.

    This is the whole reason I'm breaking this down to steps, you're not going to understand otherwise. This is why I beat up nerds in high school and learned to fix my own computer.

    Stop worrying about the god damned speed and concentrate on using pUT.iO as a fetcher fro Amazon S3.

    I understand that, and that's great. But when it is on the S3 server then what? If you want to watch it, download it, or view it, your home download speed makes a difference unless you plan to spend thousands and thousands of dollars a month on high OC connections. Then maybe the cap will be there server and no longer your house.

    What did I say about the speed? You've apparently never used S3 or any web host at all, hell you've apparently never streamed any video to speak of. S3 has very small bandwidth costs and is very capable of streaming any file for public download or viewing.

    No one is arguing rather or not you can move the file to Amazon S3, thats childs play. Here is the problem, this is what you have explained so far:

    Web resources ---> put.io ---> Amazon ---> *Magic* ---> Consumer ---> Profit!

    The problem is, you have a large resource now on Amazon S3 ready to stream. Streaming is not a no-bandwidth operation, consumers MUST be connected at a rate that is able to support the stream. Try watching a video on Hulu with a dial up connection and maybe it will sink in better.

    I honestly think he is just thick to not be able to understand the simple concept that you cannot magically get a file, video, or whatever to your computer. It needs to be downloaded in some way, whether it be streamed or any other method, it needs to be downloaded through YOUR ISPs connection. Which in fact will be limit the speed of "streaming".

    Can you please link to your threads on these other forums? I'm fascinated to know how your other conversations are going. I'm hoping to expand my knowledge on the subject.
