Project Description

I need someone to install a VideoLan (VLC) to my Linux server. VideoLan is supposed to be a media streaming solution for non-windows server. [url removed, login to view] has detailed information about the program including installation and how-to manual. I'm just too busy with other stuff and ain't technical enough for this. I need for you to install it to my server, which I'll give access to, and also to create a simple webpage that plays a streaming video (real streaming, not HTTP streaming or progressive download) just to confirm that it was installed and functions well. Please let me know if you have any question.

Hi, I've posted this project on VLC installation few days ago, but I haven't selected anyone yet. The reason is because I don't have root access to my server. But I do have SSH access, but not as root. So I'm not sure if it's possible to even install this. If you can, can you let me know if VLC can be installed without the root access. Here's the link to the VLC installation page. [url removed, login to view] If you can install it without the root access, please let me know. My server is Linux and I believe it's Fedora Core4. Thank you.
