Working with Media Player for Streaming Video

It seems obvious that you would want to keep Flash movies that contain video relatively small, in order to minimize the download time of the file. However, since Flash uses streaming technology (the file begins playing before it’s totally downloaded), it’s more important to think about the amount of time before the movie plays. For example, a Flash movie that might take 3 minutes to download may only take about 15 seconds before it starts playing. That’s what streaming is all about. The Flash Media Player component lets you load and control streaming media files in the FLV, or MP3 formats, into a Flash movie.
