Are you videos in flash video format already? You would need to convert your videos into FLV format first before viewing them inside a flash video viewer.
For flash video template, you can check out A4desk Flash Video Player Software. It offers many different designs and the flash video player also comes with features such as playlist and scrollable thumbnail. A software is also included so you can easily import video, convert into FLV format and then generate the HTML code for embed to your own web page.

Question: How i can design a web site so that i can display online videos that is taking immediately now?
Firstly, do not embed your WMV, AVI or MPG movie files directly to your web page. You should convert your video file into a streaming flash video file (.FLV) format. This way your visitors can watch the video IMMEDIATELY as it is getting downloaded (otherwise they can't see anything before the video file is fully downloaded).
Flash FLV does video streaming automatically -- there is no need for any special processing of the file. All you need is to embed a flash FLV player component or template, and the FLV file will play in streaming mode automatically.
You can use flash video software to convert your video files into FLV format, and then generate the HTML code for embedding to your existing web pages.

If you have no programming knowledge, I suggest you should checkout some all-in-1 software package which helps you to build a photo gallery, or online video gallery.

Both are Windows software so you can download the free trial, build the web page on your PC for preview, and then upload to your own web host.

Question: How can i stream a live video from my website? Do i need to know special programming language?
You need to know flash programming (actionscript) and understand the basis about stream video file format. PHP and HTML won't do it. You must use .FLV file format (the same format Youtube is using) and also a flash video player to embed within your HTML page, in order to play streaming video.

If you are on Windows platform, you can consider A4 Video Player which can convert wmv,avi,mov,mpg to FLV automatically, and let you choose among a collection of video player skins.
