Streaming Quicktime Video

Hello,

I'm trying to stream a quicktime video that I have uploaded here:
http://www.hartmancox.com/2010-hcard/

I've embedded the video with the code below.

The video will run, but it waits to fully load rather than stream. It's about 4MB, so it takes too long to fully load. I can reduce the size some, but I still need it to stream.

The animation was exported from Photoshop CS4 using H.264 and I chose the option to optimize for streaming. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Ben. The URL you provided is a good resource. Do you know if it's different if I go to an AVI format?

Hi Buddy,

Won't make a massive difference.  If you are looking for something with little/no required preload and a running buffer, you should be looking at flv or wmv formats.  Not sure if you can throw these out fo your video creation software, but if you cant, there are plenty of good free file type converters out there.
