I need to offer our teachers the ability to view avi's/wmv's relevant to their department and wondered if I could setup a media server to do this. Then I wanted to create a list or something to point to these videos so teachers can view the videos internally in the school or externally (students too would be useful).
We run windows server 2008 and have set up a publishing point and linked to one video for testing purposes which works internally, but only on windows media player and NOT outside of the network.
What do i need to do to allow our staff/students access to play these on their choice of media players. If its an issue we will have to force them down the microsoft route, but be nice since we provide tablets to staff and students.
