We have a secure application on the Internet that you have to log into
to use. We want to be able to display a video from a streaming media
server via this application. The streaming media server is behind a
firewall so I want my Rails app to proxy the stream to the user so
that the stream is not available unless you log in.
I know I can use send_file to just show the video file, but I prefer
to be able to use the streaming server so that the user does not have
to wait for the file to download before it starts to play.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
