    Selecting frames of video for streaming

    657202
      Hello all,

      I have already searched in the forum for something like that but did not fund any answers.

      I have huge pieces of video stored with Intermedia (10g, release 2), and I am looking for some way to stream only the video between frames X and Y.

      Is there a way to do it without using something as JMF?

      Any ideas?

      Thanks,
      Ticiano

          Much depends on how you are streaming....

          For example, realserver allows the start and stop time to be placed
          on the URL. (I don't think frames are supported, but this is easily calculated using the frame rate....)

          I would think other players/servers would allow this as well..

            Larry,

            But does realserver, like Helix, allows to select start and stop time within a video on an ORDVideo field? Directly from intermedia, using plugin?

            I have also looked on JMF, do you have any experience at this?

              Yes. (Helix and Realserver are VERY related).

              You can do anything JMF allows with files with multimedia types. So, if JMF supports this, the answer would be yes.

              Basically, binary data stored in BLOBS can be (and are) accessed randomly, just like files.
