I want to use streaming videos instead of progressive download.
How is this done with Dreamweaver CS4?
When I click on the Insert media>FLV it brings up a dialogue box which allows you to choose from Progressive Download or Streaming.
If I choose streaming, I'm presented with a Server URI box prefixed by rtmp://
I don't have a specific Adobe Flash Streaming portal, but I'd set up the MIME type for flash streaming with my internet provider (1&1) a couple of years ago, and I've used streaming video lots of times without problem (had put that together in Flash, though, not Dreamweaver).
so if my site is: http://www.mySite.com
and my video is myVid.flv,
what do I put for Server URI and what do I put for Stream name?
Thanks for any assistance.

Streaming video cannot be set-up as a MIME type, as it requires a streaming server. Setting the MIME file extension to recognize any of the video/audio files does just this, (it recognizes the file type) but delivers them as progressive not streaming.
