I wish. This is my first time working with Quicktime and SMIL so I have no
idea what I'm doing. Confession.mov is a SMIL file that just links to the
different title images and movies. You can see the SMIL text if you open
confession.mov in a text editor.

What I *think* is causing all the trouble is that my original post is an
mpeg4 file and it looks like Quicktime can't figure out when to start
playback so quicktime just waits until the entire clip has been
downloaded. My reason for thinking this is that all the comments are
playing more smoothly, even if you skip directly to them.

As I understand it RTSP would make all these problems go away? Do I need
special software on the server to use RTSP? Because in that case I'm out
of luck.

I have a plan for version 2 of the video comments. I will write those up
later today (after breakfast especially).
