First time posting here-I was sent here from Stackoverflow for this question. :-D I'm setting up an online music-lessons site. I have very large video files-500-600Meg each that I want to play from my hosted server. I figured it was as simple as uploading the video and clicking to the url, but when I do that, the quicktime player comes up in my browser, but after two minutes I give up because it looks like it is trying to buffer the whole video before playing-or something?
What do I need to be able to embed my own videos on my own server and have them start playing quickly when a user clicks play?
A note: even thought he video files are really big, I don't expect to have very many people viewing the videos all at once. on a good day, I may have 10 people watching at once at the most.
