Video streaming via VB app
Posted on 2007-08-01
One of my clients has the following scenario:
He wants to set up his classes on video so that the students can view them online (not live, just the recorded video and it may be just as a user on his network rather than on an actual web site). I have a VB app that will allow you to watch videos on Windows Media Player. He also wants to restrict the usage to one viewing per student, which can easily be controlled by my app. Students will get a password when they sign up for the course and they then have 6 months to watch the videos.
How do we make this work with a remote workstation where the student dials in, logs into the system and then watches the video? My biggest concern is that the video is going to a remote desktop that is essentially a dumb terminal. What do we need to require of the users ion order to make this work?
