I am currently working on a modeling web site and I want to offer a online portfolio where models

can post their photos, audio and video files, thus making it a multimedia based portfolio.

Here is the list of the files I plan to allow the models to upload in their portfolio
Photos - .gif, .jpg, .bmp
Audio - .mpeg, wma, mp3, ram and wav
Video - .avi, .mpeg, .mpg, .ram, and .mov

I am trying to find a way for users of this site to view the audio/video files without having any

file format specific plug-in or player installed on their desktops. So far I have concluded that it

would be best if somehow I can manage to stream down the audio and video files on the clientís

desktop in Flash format since this would require the clients to have only a Flash player which is a

very common plug-in now a days.

I am seeking a way to convert the various files that models upload i.e mpeg, wma, mp3, ram, wav,

avi, .mpeg, .mpg, .rm, and .mov to a common swf Flash format.

Is anyone aware of such a tool or piece of application that would automatically convert all uploaded

files to Flash format. Also if there is a Flash component that would allow real-time streaming of

the flash files in the clientís browser without saving the swf files in the Internet Cache or

Temporary Internet Files folder.

Any help, advice or pointers on this matter would be highly appreciated. If anyone has developed

such a feature in the past then I am also open to buying that from him (of course I canít pay a lot

of money).

Let me know.

Thanks
V
