Welcome to JavaRanch!

Did you know we have forums for technical questions? I'll move this for you. A link will stay so it'll be easy to find.

Looks like Jeanne forgot the moving part. I do that all the time.

I moved it here to Java In General Intermediate because there are more than one way to actually solve this. Personally I would take whatever front end tech you are using and have it add a URL/web page that plays videos like YouTube. Then you just link to the location of your video, rather than trying to have your code download it, or look it up in a Blob in your database.

I'd strongly agree with Mark here, you probably want to avoid hosting large videos like that yourself, it's a massive cost in infrastructure to support that sort of thing (just ask Google).

As far as I know, youtube use mactomedia flash video player (actually name can be a bit different, but here it doesn't matter). In this case, I think, you need to know how to integrate this player with html pages

I agree. Here's the link:
