Video streaming


Does anyone here use their VPS (cPanel) for streaming videos? I'm looking for some info on what resource usage is required, what sized videos are you streaming, number of views and other related info. I guess this would be progressive streaming method, unless someone has installed "real" streaming software on their VPS.

Also, does anyone use or can recommend any "real" streaming hosts so that I can get some info on pricing for such services? Please PM if it is not appropriate to post here.
