We are planning to host series of video files (flv) for streaming to end users. The visitors will be viewing the video from Liferay portal. The video files are of the sizes ranging between 50mb to 300mb. Immediately on publishing videos on the portal, it will have around 200 visitors viewing it (say within couple of minutes). Now the question:

* Do we host the video files as WCM contents, that gets published in a WebServer path using FSR. The WebServer will be configured for optimum delivery of these files.
* Or, can we directly use the DM (Document Management) part of Alfresco to host these videos? And link the Portal to stream the video directly from the Alfresco DM URL?
