So i could request the first 30 seconds... SMIL can do this, and a system we built as a proof of concept a few years ago used SMIL and RTSP and you could 'roll back' 10, 15, or 30 seconds from any point to see a shot 'in context' (it was a film analysis engine). But this was SMIL with a RTSP, not progressive download... the future has more possibilities than I guess we imagine.:-) cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
