Progressive downloads (not working)
Hi. I am making my new site, and have several Quicktime mov files (set as Progressive Download With Compressed Header). Thing is, they don't seem to be downloading progressively, regardless of how I utilize them.
I've tried standard embedding (<object>/<embed> method), and get the Q logo until if FULLY downloads.
I've even tried using prettyPhoto (...a script that makes the whole screen dim, and presents a nice floating window above the site to display the image/video)... Kind of like Lightbox. Same thing there... The pop-up window shows a blank screen until it's FULLY loaded.
My videos are all stored in a video folder on my webspace.
Is there anything more I need to do to get them to load progressively? Despite being compressed and relatively small (300x200), the wait time on some of them is too long (...expecially with no indeication that it's loading being displayed).
Only solution I could find is to put them on YouTube, and embed that (...the video then progressively downloads).... but I would rather the files just be stored on my webspace. True streaming is not an option (as it's an added cost, and really kind of pointless with my 300x200 clips that, at worst, are about 2.5 minutes long for the few longer ones).
