Playing MP4 files with progressive download?
Posted on 2008-10-03
I have an ASP.NET application which has a folder that stores MP4 and FLV files. I want my Flash Player (also part of the application) to load the proper MP4 files and play them. I ran into a couple of problems with it. In case of the FLV files this is not a problem since it works. If I try it with MP4 files what happens is the following:
1/ it doesn't do anything until I RENAME the file to FLV (so some IS6 problem which I am not aware of)
2/ once I rename it, it WON'T play until the whole file is downloaded in the player.
My question is the following: Is it possible that this is caused by the header being at the end of the file? I am not an expert on this issue so if someone can help me out I would be grateful.
Also how do I set the MP4 to work properly on IS6? If I try to "download" the MP4 directly I get a page not found so it is not interpreting the MP4 as a file and not sending it to IS6.
