    My question now is..

    How could I make it so the video will begin playing before the file is done loading all the way.

    I have some large video files and its important that it begins playing pretty quick rather wait a few minutes or longer to begin.

    i've read about something progressive video playback.. but not sure how to understand it exactly..

    It already does this (or should) in all browsers except for older versions of IE. What browser are you using?

    I had tried it with a small file it appeared to have loaded before playing, although very fast but i figured cause the video was very small...

    I also tried with a larger file, hosted somewhere else that i found online as a sample mp4 file that was a larger file. and it seemed to play before it was finishes, quickly... .

    But now, i will be testing this myself after i convert 1 of my large files, but the progressive playback does count on the video header, correct?

    So, if the plugin does play before video loads, this also depends on my file?

    Thank you
