I'm hoping to make some streaming videos available. I have three priorities: 1) That the video doesn't require a massively fast connection on the viewer side, i.e. should work with 128k ADSL if possible 2) That the video can be downloaded to be viewed offline or embedded into Powerpoint etc. if the user so chooses 3) That the system I use for streaming etc. is free
My server is linux based and the site runs with PHP. I have root access to install software if required.
What's the best format and system to use for this? The video is produced by a digital video camera.

thanks to these video sharing sites, flash is a top contender, because it plays on just about all platforms.
i looked at an embedded youtube clip yesterday, and i didn't see a download link, but i bet that you could include the code as part of your page design... most of these video sharing sites post it for everyone to use.
vimeo used to leave the your original submitted file online, so you could link to that as well, and maybe bypass the brand logo that some of these sites put on their clips?
what we are talking about here is using someone else's bandwidth and encoding, so you can essentially put up a video site for free... all you have to do is to come up with the content.
