SBS 2008 Streaming video and audio files

We have a client who is thinking about ordering one of the versions of SBS 2008. He wants to store some video and audio files on the server which will be runing the SBS 2008 and to stream them over the internet through his website. Is it SBS 2008 suitable for such activities ?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would not do this with a SBS2008 machine. SBS2008 is already running many demanding tasks such as Active Directory, Exchange, and Monitoring and Reporting. It would be better to purchase a separate machine running Server 2008 to do this.
I hope this helps. Good luck.
