Simulated Live Broadcast - Macromedia Flash Flashcom

We're running a stream of a collection of videos that my company has produced on our site. With Windows Media Services, it allows us to do what's called a "Simulated Live Broadcast" where we give it a list of video files, and it plays them in order (like a playlist). The real benefit with it is that the video files are "always playing" even when no one is connected to the server, sort of like on television. So, if I logon at 10:00, i see the beginning of video 1, and if you logon at 10:05, you will be seeing ...

    Default Simulated Live Broadcast

    We're running a stream of a collection of videos that my company has produced
    on our site. With Windows Media Services, it allows us to do what's called a
    "Simulated Live Broadcast" where we give it a list of video files, and it plays
    them in order (like a playlist). The real benefit with it is that the video
    files are "always playing" even when no one is connected to the server, sort of
    like on television. So, if I logon at 10:00, i see the beginning of video 1,
    and if you logon at 10:05, you will be seeing the same video that i am seeing,
    just 5 minutes into it. Sorry for the longwinded description, just think of it
    as a television station that is constantly broadcasting content. Anyway, we
    want to move over to FMS, and we were wondering if FMS would support something
    like this?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Sure... fms can do that. You'd define the list of files on the server side, and
    play them across a server-side stream. Then your clients would connect to that
    server side stream, and everyone would be seeing the same thing regardless of
    when they connect.
