I have been on some websites and have noticed that they actually have streaming video and IRC chat.  They neat thing is I didn't have to download any special plugin or such to get the streaming video to work perfectly.  How exactly do I achieve streaming video for my browser without plugins?  I believe Netscape has some kind of PUSH/PULL command, maybe this helps in streaming?  

Now does the server need to be setup in some special way to achieve streaming for the website?  And also, what kind of file does one need to have to make such a streaming file (is it multiple JPG pictures or just one big AVI file or what) ?

Now for IRC, if one wants to have IRC chat in his/her website how would one go about achieving this?  Does the server need to be setup in some special way?

Thank you VERY much for your help. MUCH IS APPRECIATED!!

This is for your IRC question. I am one of the people that have a real-time IRC chat client on my page. To use a real-time IRC chat client on your web page requires a special software package. I am using my ISP's software to do this. Anyone can use my ISP's software provided credit is not taken for it. All you have to do is view the source of the webpage and copy all the HTML for the chat client. And then paste it on your own. It acts like a java applett, which it is.

Here is my homepage: http://puffin.ptialaska.net/wereon/main.htm
When the page's menu system finishes loading, goto "USUAL" and
select "CHAT". When the page loads up Right-click above the applett and View source. then find the Chat Client code and copy it, then paste it where you like on your page. WARNING: You will be stuck with the server specified by my ISP, which happens to be their own. The good part is it's brand new, so you can register your own room without asking. Well just check it out, it can be accessed by an IRC client like Pirch.

SERVER: puffin.ptialaska.net
PORT: 6667

my e-mail is: steve2@eagle.ptialaska.net
my IRC name is: Steve2

If you have anymore questions about an IRC client on your page let me know.

Hope this helps
