Progressive Downloads - Previewing movie clips while downloading
My computer is connected to other computers. Sometimes, I would like to access shared video clips from other people's computers. With Windows Media Player, I could just double click on the file and quickly skim through the entire clip. However, with Linux, I'll have to download the entire file before I could watch it on mplayer. Even if I open the file while it is downloading, I can only watch the first few parts of the file which have already been downloaded without having the option to fast forward to later parts. Is there any solution which can allow me to preview a video file while it is still being downloaded.
