That was back in 2008, they didn't have 2 hour long videos. But what I
was talking about what regarding the technology, lighttpd and nginx both
do pseudo streaming. The moov atom is about 5 MB so it takes about 10
seconds to download that before playing the video. Is there some
technique to start playing the video after partial download of the moov
atom? Or is it possible to cache the moov atom into memory for faster
