    Hi All!
    I work for a college and we have recently started recording the BBC Bytesize programs using a PC equipped with a PVR WinTV card. It stores about 4hrs of video in a 2.5gb file (which I didn't think was too bad)!
    At the end, we are hoping to store all the video (around 50hrs) on our server to hopefully be streamed around the network, but there seem to be so many options to choose from at this point.
    For example, what is the best file type to use (*.mov, *.mpg, DivX) etc etc. Also, would it be risky having a whole classroom (15 users) view this data all at the same time in term of bandwidth usage or should we just play it safe and only give teachers access to the footage to be shown through the projectors.
    Any help, hints and tips in the world of video streaming will be appreciated! Is there anything I should be looking out for too?

    Thank you in advance
    Nick
