Spruce Up Your Site With Live Streaming Flash Video

There are aspects that set some websites apart from the pack. Live streaming Flash video is one of them. Adobe Flash gives you the ability to provide audio video content to your visitors from your site. One thing you will need before you can use this technology is Flash Media Server, an application that is excellent for larger sites. Alternatively, you can use progressive download technology, which is very similar to streaming but technically not the same thing.

All you need to use progressive download is a host provider. While this may not be enough for the largest of sites, progressive download is practically identical to streaming for small to large websites. For the majority of site owners, this is the way to go. Shop around and compare prices and features from different providers before selecting one. If you have questions there should be a customer service technical support number for you to call. Also the site should have FAQs and a Help section which may answer many of your questions.

So what can you do with Flash video streaming? The possibilities are nearly unlimited. If you have a website about sports, you could offer sports commentary or regular sports reports to keep visitors coming back. Many dog breeders use puppy cams to showcase their puppies for sale. Someday cares have kid cams where parents can log on and watch their child from the office computer. You can create video tutorials and training materials, advertise a service or product, or communicate with business associates. While you could probably present the information through text and images, video is so much more captivating.

There are some sites that allow you to upload live streaming Flash video for free. They host it on their site and bring in more traffic for your video. You can use your video to get a message across and even to promote your main website in an entertaining and/or informative way. No matter what kind of video in what genre you are making, it can really add life to the average website. You may want to study a bit about film making to ensure the lighting in the room and positioning of your web cam is correct. The better quality video you present to your visitors, the more professional you will appear.
