Progressive Download

  • Anonymous - 2003-03-03

    I have tried to use QT to open an ogg vorbis URL. It does not appear that the progressive download capability that one would experience with an mp3, aiff, mov... does not work. Is that correct? Does it require creating the ogg file in a certain way. Or is that something that isnt implemented in the file importer?

    Everything else worked well on WinXp, OS9, OSX for me.

      If you cut off the second half of an ogg file with a hex editor, you can still open and play it without problems. So progressive download should be possible. I think this problem is related to the other posts regarding the awful delays when opening ogg files, i.e. it appears that the entire file needs to be in memory before it starts playing. I hope this is fixed soon!!!
