I find your HTTP Explorer very useful. I have been looking for such a software for a long time. I was wondering if there is a way to stream video over the net? If I click on a video link, the whole video needs to be downloaded first, before I can open the file. Also, is there a way to see thumbnails of the video files?
Thank you for your message ;)
To stream directly a video, you must paste its address into your media player (generally : file > open url) or configure your browser to open the video files with an external player.
For video thumbnails in web pages, there is no way for the moment...
thanks for your reply. One could think of video streaming functionality in an embedded flash player. Just like you have integrated the playback of mp3 songs via flash player.
See also flowplayer.sourceforge.net
However, as far as I know, playback of embedded video in flash player is only possible with few video formats. For example flash player does not support DivX or XVid files etc.
It's a good idea but, indeed, this players (like youtube) support only flash video format (.flv).
