Flash FLV player using PHP

After a long experiments , i have developed another player which uses XMOOV for streaming.Actually i got this php from didn't change the php file instead of it i developed a player using this php.
The player will start streaming anywhere from the file and it also make the seeking operation in the cached file.

Download Source here

I have no server space so i use freewebs space ,.Pls forgive me :D

The main problem of this technology is the performance of the php server.It need a good php server which can handle more requests at a time.

That's all ..... and all other ups to you.
