The first thing that you can do to speed up your video streaming is upload your video onto YouTube. After you upload it to YouTube, YouTube will turn it into a flash video format and will give you a unique snippet of HTML code that you can place on your website to replicate the video. This may be the easiest way to embed video on the web.There is no need to take up space on your hosting account as Youtube will stream the video for you. Once you have inserted the video html code from Youtube, you can then click "play video" and your video will start instantly. The beauty of embedding video is Youtube will provide the space on their server to host the video for you. No need to have your own hosting account bogged down with video files.
The next option you have is to convert your large AVI or WMV video into flash format. To do this, you will need a special software. Please let me know if you have any other problem
