Default Streaming Video in ASP.Net2

Hi,
I want to display video to user in asp.net2 intranet site. It should support most commonly used video format. Streaming video is preferred over downloaded video. Which video format support streaming? Do we have to use any server for video streaming or just host on IIS server?
I want user to click on thumbnail link for video, then display video.
User should have control to cancel watching, pause, play, replay, reverse (but not forward) capability.
Once video is over system should generate notification that video is watched and finished. If this is not viable, then once video is finished, let user click button that video is watched and I want that response to be saved in database.
Also is it possible to know whether user has watched 25%, 50% or 5 min video before then cancel or close browser? It helps in tacking viewership of video.
What are the options I can have? I have heard about Windows Media SDK, FLV format and FLV player, DirectX SDK, but still confusing.

jnks2005: I'd suggest you look at using WMV video and Windows Media Services:
this page will help you see which streaming features are available depending on which Windows Server version you are running:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...r/version.aspx
If your videos are small (a few minutes and a few megs) FLV can be an option but for longer/larger videos, I've found WMV to be the best choice.

Hopefully someone else can help with the database and viewership tracking questions, those are out of my limited knowledge.
