ah yes, the attraction to Darwin is that it is free - great, especially when
we were told RealVideo streaming was getting close to 600 quid a month

cheers for the thoughts, I too tried entera.com but didn't get very far, but
quickly read a bit about it on streamingserver.org which sounded
interesting. I will read more on this.

As far as the install base goes, we already have a large number of our users
with quicktime already in use as the current site has movies to download.
For new users we were prepared to offer it as a download as much of the
original content will remain in quicktime format.
