To get a = stream instead of a whole file download, you want to pass the URL to the r= enderer instead of the file. A common way to do that is with a playlist t= hat contains the URL. Create a file like called makemedia01.m4u containing= this one line: http://eric.blognews.com/makemedia01.mp4 Then make sure th= e mime type is set correctly by adding this to .htaccess: AddType .m4u vide= o/vnd.mpegurl (See http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/video/vnd-m= pegurl for documentation on that mime type.) Lastly, point to your .m4u f= ile instead of the .mp4 file. > > Walnut Creek? You live out that way? I= =B9m in Silver Lake near Hollywood.
