playing flash video from localhost
Posted on 2011-10-27
I've been developing a website on my local computer using XAMPP. I have a simple video player embedded in the website that plays video files also located on my local computer. I've noticed that when I play video files through the flash player, the video stutters (as if the buffer can't keep up) and the video doesn't even start to play until the entire file has finished loading ( even though the buffer is set to 2 seconds in the flash player ).
So, my question is: do you know why this is happening? Is it because I'm not playing the files from a traditional web server and everything is located on my local machine?
