you sure about this Lucas? if the movie is quick start and the plug in
knows about it then it should be able to show before it is all
downloaded. Shouldn't it?

perhaps you need to check the local mime settings (inside the QT
configuration panel) so that mpeg4 goes to QT. From there it ought to
be up to what the embed tag or movie settings are, but if it isn't
quickstart then all data has to arrive whether in player or plug in.
