    Video on iphone accessible website

    So I want to make a website with my home videos. Each video is an mp4 and each is between 400 Mb to 1.2 Gb. My question is; how do I make a site in which I can upload these videos to the site and play them online on my iPhone?

    Thanks for the help

    streamed data

    Hi,

    iPhone and Co. use streamed data. Yo you need a server and an app for your phone.
    Adobe support streamed media too - NOT FREEWARE !

    To create video webpage for your phone without server connection not possible i think.
    Please google.

    Maybe DivX.com support phones.

    aseylys:
    Learn about building web sites here:
    http://www.w3schools.com/
    Your current mp4s are FAR too large to expect viewers to download via Internet. Keep file size below about 4MB per minute of video and split large files into no more than about 50-70MB sections.
    Use QuicktimePro to compress your current mp4s into iPhone compatable (smaller) video files:

    Use "File", "Export for Web" to transcode your mp4s.
    Play them back on your Web page using JWPlayer:

    Here's an example of mp4s on Web site that play back on iPhone:

    Not true. The Web browser in an iPhone will progressive download video files just like any other browser... no "streamed data" needed.
    "app for your phone"
    also not needed... just use a compatable media player and compatable type video file as described above.
    To create video webpage for your phone without server connection not possible i think.
    aseylys wants to upload to server and view online, not create a Web site that just resides on the one iPhone:
    upload these videos to the site and play them online on my iPhone?

    ... make a site for upload and play (embeded player) ... no server needed but online ... pure file transfer like torrents and embeded player.

    aseylys' question is:

    A web server is needed to serve a Web site online so that those videos can be played online on the iPhone.
    No offence meant, but this is a Web Developer Forum. When you offer up answers to questions, you are putting your answers up for peer review, so expect to be challenged on occasion if we find your answers less than than satisfactory.
