Are you using RTSP > top deliver? I wish. This is my first time working with Quicktime and SMIL so I have no idea what I'm doing. Confession.mov is a SMIL file that just links to the different title images and movies. You can see the SMIL text if you open confession.mov in a text editor. What I *think* is causing all the trouble is that my original post is an mpeg4 file and it looks like Quicktime can't figure out when to start playback so quicktime just waits until the entire clip has been downloaded. My reason for thinking this is that all the comments are playing more smoothly, even if you skip directly to them. As I understand it RTSP would make all these problems go away? Do I need special software on the server to use RTSP? Because in that case I'm out of luck. I have a plan for version 2 of the video comments. I will write those up later today (after breakfast especially). - Andreas -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt;
