Streaming video onto a prim?

It's been awhile since I've done this, so I need a refresher. I want to be able to stream a video that I create into SL, and have the video display on a prim/several prims, and I want the video to loop.

I know that I need to have land rights, and to use a placeholder texture on the prim itself and into the Media tab on the land info. What I'm not sure of -- where to upload the video, and how to avoid using Quicktime (I have Windows 10).  Thanks for the help!

Modern video format is MPEG-4, no need for old property format like QuickTime.

One place to uploads video is youtube and the most easy way to do it, alternative to a dedicated streaming server.

You have to script program a LSL script to loop the video on a media prim unless it is made to loop on youtube or on the streaming server with for example PHP/Java coding.

LSL media functions on a prim does not provide controls for loop, end time etc., so to make a working LSL doing it, requires knowledge on HTTP and some clever use of timer functions.
