Debian Squeeze video streaming server.

Link to this post 07 Feb 12

Hello everyone,

I'm searching for a program or something else which can stream video's and if possible on a webpage that I can forward to my public ip address. I have a collection of video's that I want to see when I'm not at home. I found out how you can stream music, but Video's are something else. I know of VLC, but can I still see a well organised structure of my video's with VLC? Does someone knows a solution to this?

Thanks in advance.

@jonathanb Sorry, but I use VLC, so I don't know of any substitutes that I can help you with. Hopefully, someone will come along that can give you some alternatives.

@jhonyjhons It's better to start a new thread with a title that explains your request/problem. I came in to jonathans thread to see if I could help and noticed your question. Anyway, since you're already here, look at this link:

There are links there for obtaining any and all Linux distros.
If you have any other questions, please start a new thread and we'll be glad to help.

@jhun Try to follow some tutorials which will give you some basic knowledge about the things inside Linux. I started with Debian and Stayed there, but Debian has a high learning curve (That's what I heard) so I would suggest to use the Ubuntu distro. Download link:

@GoinEasy9 Is there in VLC a structure from where you can choose the Video that you want to see? If that is the case then maybe VLC is the answer even though there isn't a website where I can access it. When I was on google I saw another post with you giving as answer VLC, but as you can see I have slightly other needs.

I couldn't find that on google. :O
Thank you for the link anyway! Now I can start with this and if all things go as planned then I have my own Linux media server. Thank you both for your help!
