    To stream a video, your server needs to have QuickTime Streaming Server or similar installed. Alternatively, you can embed the file into a page, but this isn't really streaming, rather letting the visitor view the video as it downloads. :)

    Or you can embed using RealPlayer, then you don't need any software server side (that I am aware of). RM is also lightweight; you can google around to find instructions, I honestly don't remember how to do it (I just update the files we built a year or two ago), but it was easy, just a little time consuming.
