IPFS can be used to store and play videos. Suppose we add a video:
ipfs add -q sintel.mp4 | tail -n1
Take the resulting hash, You can view it a couple different ways:
On the command line:
ipfs cat $vidhash | mplayer -vo xv -
Via local gateway:
mplayer http://localhost:8080/ipfs/$vidhash # or open it up in a tab in chrome (or firefox) chromium http://localhost:8080/ipfs/$vidhash
(Note: the gateway method works with most video players and browsers)
