Like i said previously i do not use the MP4; module.
And besides that all videos are compiled for HTML5 streaming with the
following command line via ffmpeg. -movflags +faststart
So all metadata is at the start of the file all other mp4's are fine just
very large / very long mp4 files have this problem. webm ogg flv all fine
and fast regardless of size.
