How do I force progressive download?

I have an Adobe Media Server all set up and playing videos over RTMP.


Users on low bandwith settings experience buffering, on occasion. To combat this, I want to force users to download the entire video before they watch any of it.


Through my research, I've found that "Progressive download" is the way to go if I want to do this, though I haven't found how to enable or access this on the server.

    Progressive download is available to be set on the Client.


    You can also do DVR type progressive loading of the video weven with HDS or HLS streaming as well, which for HLS is set in the httpd.conf file in Apache, and for HDS .f4m, this is set with the manifest playlist .f4m file.


    Also integrating JW Player to your scope can be accessed through javascript API to set download duration before a video plays.


    Hope this helps.
