[Plugin: pb-embedFlash] How do I specify a buffer length? (3 posts)

    I have FLV videos that I'd like to stream, however it appears that the entire file has to load before it playback begins. I entered a value into the Settings "Playback Behaviour > bufferlength" parameter in the Settings page, but when I saved the options, the value did not get saved.

    Is there a specific embedded syntax I need to use? I'm currently using an entry similar to this:

    [flash http://someurl.com/path/movie.flv

    I also tried this...
    [flash http://someurl.com/path/movie.flv f={bufferlength=2}]
    ...but the entire movie still loads before playback.

    Thanks!!

    Maybe the player (or the version I use?) cannot handle to (pre-)buffer that file format or the format does not support this. MP4s work for me.
