>>I really don’t know if this will be entirely successful or not since
not everyone in our audience have access to portable devices.<<
You realize that more people in the world, not to mention your specific audience (college kids) have mobile phones than computers right? With a market that is as mobile as college kids what you will probably find is that a large chuck of them are going to be accessing info on the web via phones, blackberrys, etc.
>>And yes, we are going to make it accessible mostly WMV for PC users
(since almost everyone use Windows OS) but also in quicktime for does
very few people that have Mac.<<
I’m sorry but that might not be a very good idea given your stated audience. You realize that Macs are very popular with college kids right? Apple’s marketing targets them specifically and has make their laptops very popular on college campuses. I would seriously caution anyone against using WMV’s on the web to display video, the most common video format for online video distribution are FLVs. Since all it needs to play is the Flash player which most computers online already have, and the player is cross platform there is a much lower chance of your viewers not being able to see your content.
>>He knows how to use HTML and Flash, how should he build the video
segment of the page considering the internet speed of our audience?
And if its possible to use the Adobe programs for live internet feed?<<
To keep the size of Flash content down what most developers do is dynamically load external flash content into the main movie. This way the viewer doesn’t have to wait for the entire movie to load, only the parts they want. I don’t believe that the technologies in the suite will work for live internet video feed.
