Thanks Lucas

on a WebStar server I ran years ago they had a plug in that enabled
byte based delivery, with pdfs specifically in mind. something like
this is very interesting and potentially very useful, though you'd also
want a simple way to know what range you wanted, so for time based
media it should translate to timecode. So i could request the first 30
seconds…

SMIL can do this, and a system we built as a proof of concept a few
years ago used SMIL and RTSP and you could 'roll back' 10, 15, or 30
seconds from any point to see a shot 'in context' (it was a film
analysis engine). But this was SMIL with a RTSP, not progressive
download…

the future has more possibilities than I guess we imagine.:-)

cheers
