    Download and Play videos

    John Dyer
      I am attempting to build a video player that can play files we store on amazon s3, but also download them to play when offline.

      When a user selects a video, I would like to have the video start downloading to an app directory and immediately have FLVPlayback start playing it when enough is downloaded. The problem is if I use URLStream to download the videos, the FLVPlayback component won't play it until it's 100% downloaded. But if I point FLVPlayback to the file online, I can't get to the temp file to store it for later use.

      Does anyone know a way to either (1) have FLVPlayback play a video that is being downloaded into an app directory or (2) get at and store the file an FLVPlayback component is progressively downloading?

      Thanks!
