  Chipp,

  Streaming video is actually quite simple and can be done in any
application that supports playback of quicktime movies:

  You must have QT Pro to do this.

  1. Open a streaming video in QT Pro (Open URL from the File menu.)

  2. Once the streaming video is open, save it. This creates what's called a
reference movie. It contains no actual video data, it simply points to the
streaming video.

  3. Now open the reference movie normally in your player object. The
reference movie will initiate the stream automatically.

  Hope this is what you were looking for.

  Devin

    Richard,

    On XP and RR 1.5 and 2.0 beta

    set the filename of player 1 to "C:/test.mov"
    works fine.

    set the filename of player 1 to URL "file:C:/test.mov"
    crashes the environment.

    test.mov is a progressive mov. I would like to be able to:

    set the filename of player 1 to URL
    "http://www.altuit.com/webs/altuit/KenRay/test.mov" and have it begin to
    playback almost instantly (on a fast connection).

    but this doesn't work either. So...how do you stream video from the web
to a
    RR/MC client?
