streaming MP4 files

I have been attempting to embed MP4 files in my title and have them stream. They are rather large. So far, no matter how I format the MP4s, they will only download, then play. THis is an issue as the files are large and there tends to be a few moments before tey completely down load.

I thought MP4s were streamable. My content sits in a LMS that runs on a IIS server.

Any ideas?

    You probably just need to set up the MIME type on the server to tell it what to do with MP4 files - i.e. to tell it it is a video/mpeg.

    This is easy to do if you have access to the server yourself - just google the process. it's only a couple of steps.
