Help streaming video

Hey there, I would like to stream a video I have on my website. Currently, I have it downloading all at once, then playing in the browser using Quicktime. I would like to know how to get the video to stream, and maybe include a pause for buffering purposes? I am using Frontpage as well. Any help will be appreciated. Thx.

It somewhat depends on how users have their QT plugin set up, and how you saved the QT. You CAN have QT movies start playing before theyre finished downloading IF you save them to do that.

If you actually want to STREAM video you need to use QuickTime Streaming Server which is available from apple and *gasp* its FREE.

Weed, thanks for the quick response. I edited the video in iMovie and saved it as a QuickTime in order to reduce file size. But I did not see anything about saving them to start playing before the video finishes downloading. What did I over look in iMovie, or does the program not have the capablitie? Thx.

When you Export, export it to QuickTime, using Expert Options under the Formats pulldown menu. Click export. In the resulting window hit the Options button, and check "Prepare for internet streaming". Use the Fast Start option.
