HTTP Pseudo-Streaming in ASP.NET Video Starter Kit

Both MP4 and FLV videos can be played back with a mechanism called HTTP \r\nPseudostreaming. This mechanism allows your viewers to seek to not-yet \r\ndownloaded parts of a video. YouTube is an example site that offers this\r\n functionality.

Previously we implement HTTP Pseudostreaming concept based on server \r\nside scripting. Such a script have lots of disadvantages such a script \r\nconsumes a lot of resources, has security implications and can only be \r\nused with FLV files mostly.

Now we encourage user to implement proper HTTP Pseudostreaming through \r\ntheir webserver rather than using any script. HTTP Pseudostreaming does \r\nnot work by default on any webserver. A serverside module is needed to \r\nenable it.

The most popular module is H264 Streaming Module which allow user  to \r\nimplement Http Pseudo streaming for mp4 videos through IIS web server.How to Setup?
