Q: I have uploaded my webpage now with the mp4 movie installed with videolightbox. I have run the movie in the website, It does work eventually, but it loads the entire movie before starting to play. I need it to start streaming as soon as possible after clicking as no one will be

A: Some video files have "control info" in the middle or at the end. So, they should be pre-loaded (partly or completely) before will start the playing.

In your case file should be pre-loaded completely.

So, you can:

1) Convert your files into .flv or .mp4 format (use "mp4 quick start" option). Control info will be moved in the beginning of file and video will start the playing immediately.

2) Add videos to VideoLightBox gallery from hostings (Youtube, Vimeo, etc.). When you add video on hosting, file will be converted into suitable format (with control info in the
beginning of file) automatically. So, you'll not have problems with VideoLightBox gallery.
