- I copied an existing sample project and mocked it up for my needs.
- I defined a local web site on a NAS and hosted some "test" videos.
- I've been debugging my code to the point that I have my videos playing from my "test" site.
Now, here's the real question. I pulled some public domain videos and hosted them on my "test" site. That got me to thinking about the more appropriate way to write the playback code. Does it make more sense to not host the videos myself and point the meta data to where the video actually exists. For example, I pulled a public domain video from Vimeo and loaded it to my "test" site. Rather than doing that, can I change the meta data to point to the video on Vimeo? Is there standard syntax to do that? If so, does the syntax change based on the hosting service?
At this stage in my development, this is more of a design question. I'm looking to collect public domain videos I find and offer playback through my channel. Any help is greatly appreciated.
