#REDIRECT [[MiddMedia]]
Using the Flash Media Server as the media manager, we will build a front-end interface to help users manage their own media, implementing a self-service model.  Faculty, staff and students can create video on their preferred platform, save a rendered file in a platform-specific format, then upload their media through the Flash Media Encoder, which will convert standard formats to FlashVideo (.flv)*, allowing anyone with the Flash Palyer to view.  Uploading the video can involve compression, reducing the storage space needed to host the media.
 
 
 
<nowiki>*</nowiki> H264 video may be used once we have a new version of Flash Media Server that supports it.
