    Insert Media Flash Video... pre-loader question

    TeeCeeGee
      Hello everybody
      I'm desperately looking for a solution regarding the following problem: I've inserted a rather long flv video (insert - media - flash video) into my site. Visitors with smaller bandwith have to wait up to 30" until the video starts playing. I either want to show them a screen saying: "video is going to be buffered - please wait" or to include an adaptive preloader that shows the % until the video will start playing. How can this be achieved? Thanks for all of your input, because this issue is very important to me and time is running for the project...

          Can you divide your long video into several small clips or chapters? Then
          just put all the clips into a common player like this one from Coffee Cup -
          and loop them together. http://www.coffeecup.com/video-player/
