Peer to Peer Could be the answer to your Video Distribution Questions.
One Big Server
So you have a collection of brilliant videos and you want to share them and your directorial genius with the world. You can go about distributing them in two ways. One is to store them at central locations frequented by people who look at videos, like your local video store. In the computer world, we call this the "client/server" model. The video store is a "server" and the people who patronize it are "clients." There are advantages to this model: people know where to go to look for a video, the stock is consistent, easily predictable and you can ask a friendly store employee for help finding what you want. The downside of this is the limited hours of operation, their fees, and their selection of videos. For example, they might not want to carry the video of your trip to the zoo.
