Which application(s) or languages do I need to build the website I want?


I would like to build a website that will contain a repository of videos, probably hundreds of short ones (3-5 minutes). I plan to have a short Flash intro of some sort, then a few different pages. I'm not sure yet about the layout, but I would like a scroll function to view the videos in a thumbnail view with a text description, and once it gets clicked on it will navigate, or start to play in an embedded flash player. I would also like each video and description to be "searchable" by keyword. I also need that content to be playable on mobile devices (ie: iPhone).

Am I able to build all of this within Flash? And how will I index each new video to be searchable?

I hope my question is clear. Thanks!

1) Server side platform (php, ASP.Net, JavaEE etc)
2) Flash Media Server
3) Database (MySql, MSSql, Oracle etc)

apart from this u need to use flash components for displaying the video on client browser

thanks for the response.

So the server side platform and Flash Media Server will be handled by the web hosting company, correct? I just need to find one that supports those apps? Or do I need to build it with Flash Server + the mySQL database?
(I have Flash CS3 and have built a practice site with embedded Flash player)
