Streaming Long or Large Video files with Jplayer

I plan to use Jplayer to stream HTML5 (and Flash fallback) videos from MP4 files. These video might be 45 minutes in length, for example.
Are there any file size limits or issues which would impact the ability to do this or the quality of the result? (This is on a "Business Class Hosting" account with unlimited file storage and bandwidth.)

Hello timatidg,

While there is no hard limit, shared hosting is not really appropriate for streaming videos, a dedicated server would be best suited for this type bandwidth.

Embedding the video would be a more viable option. Here is a link to an article that discusses "Streaming Audio/Video on Your Site."

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below, or contact live Tech Support.

Thank you,
