what is the full life-cycle of a video file that is sitting on [any server] and ends up being viewed by the consumer.
e.g this company show its architecture:http://www.pandastream.com/arch
it seems to me all they are doing is running ffmpeg and charging 99 a month for it. ( like a zillion others are now)
what do I have to do (on the back-end) to set up this for my own site so that i can do multi protocol encoding and (ultimately) playback on any device using a video tag on frontend
