Hi all,

Today I was looking for an embed for a movie then I thought MPC Star has one but it doesn't so I thought of suggestion this to the forum.

So How about it?

A web site makes a move file available for streaming download. Whoever wants to watch it still needs an appropriate player plugin to do so. That player is client-side, not server-side.

HTTP has no provision or way to handle streams or video at all, so to do it we have to step outside of HTTP. There must be software that transmits a stream -- using its own protocol over TCP/IP -- to a plugin for the browser, that intercepts and handles that protocol and stream and displays it within the client browser. There isn't and can't be an embedded player on the server side. The web, natively, doesn't do video.

MPCStar is an implementation of Tiger Player, which is freeware owned by somebody else. It's not open source, but can be freely included in packages like MPCStar. That doesn't preclude you or anybody else from also making a player or doing whatever they want with Tiger Player.

I don't think we are all on the same page here. The original poster seems to want to embed video on a webpage, this has nothing at all to do with torrent streaming, which MPCstar can do through bitcomet.

The problem with the original suggestion (as kluelos points out) is that you need support for the video on the visitors computer for the video to play, this is why most embedded video is "flash" based. There is also other types of embedded video, firefox tried to help launch an opensource one, but it will never catch on until websites start using it, forcing users of other browsers like IE to install the plugin needed to play it, but microsoft is going to resist the use of free opensource projects whenever they can. Things like adobe flash can be controlled, and types of spyware like digital rights management are used to help them monitor what you're watching, where an opensource player cannot do that.

Sure it would be nice if MPCstar developers made a video streaming protocol and an embedded player, but unless the entire world started using it suddenly, it would be futile. Regardless of it's merits, until you can get the entire world to adopt it, it would be completely useless, and the chances of it being adopted and replacing adobe flash (which is horrible) are non-existent.
