Is there a Linux version of Windows Media Server? So that windows visitors are able to view streaming video kapow msg:915023 6:50 pm on Dec 31, 2001 (gmt 0) Can anyone point me to a Linux version of Windows Media Server?
Background: I will soon create a website (for a large charity) with a lot of streaming video. The potential host has Linux servers. I need to be sure that any visitor to my new website (who uses Windows Media Player) can view the video.

Hmmmm, no reply...
If there isn't a Linux version of Windows Media Server - does that mean:
a visitor to my new website (who uses Windows Media Player) can't view the video ?
Any advice on this will help me decide which host to use.

I looked too Little. I thought for sure there was one out there. I even waded into the pit of msn dev docs and couldn't find anything. jimbo_mac msg:915027 10:28 am on Jan 2, 2002 (gmt 0)
why not try Darwin Streaming Server from apple ???[url]darwin[/url] plays both avi and quicktime formats System Requirements are Linux (Red Hat 5.2 and later, 6.2 highly recommended) Solaris 7 (SPARC) FreeBSD 3.5 Windows NT Server 4.0/Windows 2000 Server kapow msg:915028 11:06 am on Jan 2, 2002 (gmt 0)
Thanks Jimbo_Mac I found this url: [ ...] opensource.apple.com
I have not provided streaming video before, can anyone tell me if this looks like it will do the job.
My 'understanding' is that a video Mpeg (at an appropriate bit rate) will stream through windows media player - if that is the default on a visitors browser.
