Goodies :: Streaming (QuickTime) Description
QuickTime, the basis for Apple Computer's multimedia system, is in widespread use in both professional and consumer applications. As of December 1, 2005, we currently support QuickTime 7 via Darwin Streaming Server version 5.5.

DreamHost does not support live broadcasting of audio or video content at this time. Streaming of QuickTime movie files (.mov) that have been properly prepared and "hinted" for streaming are supported.

From Apple's QuickTime information:

"QuickTime is a cross platform system-level software package for Macintosh, Windows and Java which adds the capability to play movies, synthesize music, display animations, view virtual reality worlds and add multimedia capability to the computer desktop. QuickTime is implemented as a set of extensions on the Macintosh platform and a dynamic-link library (DLL) on Windows. It can process video data, still images, animated images (also known as sprites), vector graphics, multiple sound channels, MIDI music, 3D objects, virtual reality objects, panoramas and text. The number of data formats QuickTime recognizes is impressive. Currently, more than 70 different formats can be imported or exported and as formats are added, applications created today will work with them automatically."

If "Movie to Hinted Movie" doesn't appear in your export list when preparing media for streaming, you may need to reinstall QuickTimePro using the 'custom' rather than the 'default' installation option: be sure that the "authoring tools" option is installed.
