Suggestions for Flash Hosting solutions

I’d like some suggestions about potential flash hosting solutions for a project. We will be hosting a tabbed presentation, which will feature 6 FLV files with a size of around 100MB each. We estimate somewhere between 100 and 5000 concurrent users. However, we will need to take into account higher-than-anticipated traffic numbers. We will also need to stream this video to users around the world. And of course, there should be tools for reporting views, etc.

I’m new to flash hosting, so if anyone could point me in the right direction, I’d much appreciate it!

Hello Conjuand ,

In my opinion 100mb is extremely large for a flash file...I hope you have a proactive loader for it.If your actualy planning for a 3 TB concurrent usage, so youd need: ROUGHLY, 100TB of bandwidth a month.....
100TB of bandwidth would cost....well...ALOT, not even host gator or somebody could offer you that amount for a respectable budget.

Pogue, That depend of the number of visitos and hits, however, to the OP, you need for sure a dedicated server, with 100/5000 concurrent users, indeed, probably a load balanced setting is what you'll need.

Also, if you're going to convert the files to FLV on the server, you have to set up ffmpeg on it.
