The video is too large and is taking a long time to buffer, the only way to stream it automatically that I see is by going to the video directly in which it opens the users media player in my case media player, than you can click play instantly. Not familiar with that mod.

Yea they are a little big (one is 45 min the other one is 30 min) will check if they are on dial up which would be a major issue.

The author stopped updating it just recently and its supported formats are limited, but it works alright for streaming, for me.

The block on my main page is using it, only its a youtube video being streaming through the mod, gives you an idea of the flexability though.

if you are embedding a .wmv it requires the user to have a media player that will play the file. If they don't have the correct player installed you will get the red X. Flash is much more widely used, and it's much more likely to be installed on a visitor's computer. I would suggest converting to flv format (like used on youtube)

there are a bunch of flv players available... wimpy rave ($40) is easy to use, has a free demo, and a nuke howto. Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

That video file must be huge, I never got past "buffering". You might consider a short version for unregistered users, and create a registered users only block for any large videos.
