For work where aesthetics counts, that's a big problem. for long work I'd probably do something like chunking it into sections (much like DVD chapters) so if someone wanted a particular section you could go to that section. For on demand specific sections (from 1hr 2min to 1 hr 4min 23 sec. 20 frames) RTSP is the only way to go, but you really want a ton of bandwidth overhead.... 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/
