I was wondering if anyone either has, is working on, or intends to write a module which will transcode all uploaded videos to a particular format (FLV preferably), and maybe have some sort of feature such as Youtube which allows you to select which quality to watch to accommodate for users on slower connections as well.
Basically, all my videos are in HD, and are in a size that is definately unstreamable. Rather than attempt to down-convert them before uploading them, it'd be nice if the server could do it for me. It's my server, so I'm not concerned about using up CPU resources in doing this.
