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.

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.
