Flash videos - control of buffering/playback for Internet video streams

Is there any way to increase the buffer size/delay the playback time of Flash videos being streaming from the Internet? I saw an article about Flash Playback but couldn't decipher exactly what the fellow was talking about - whether it was coding I would have to do or whether it was a separate purchaseable product - e.g. a professional version of Flash.  Are there any substitutes for the Flash player that I can download for Youtube videos to play that might have more features and Youtube would just take them as standard Flash?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This might be what you need.


There is a great wizard which will create the embedding code for you. Buffer length is under the Behaviour title.

This looks like something I would use to add video to a Web site - not what I want to do. I want to improve video streaming to my computer from a video streaming server somewhere else. As well I don't want coding - I want a finished product and am willing to pay for it but not the minimum $1000.00 Euros the fellow at this link is asking for 'doing the work' for me.
