Getting a Quicktime Movie to Stream Instead of Download

Getting a Quicktime Movie to Stream Instead of Download

In the past, I've placed Quicktime movies on Amazon S3, and when a user loads the file's in Firefox (on OS X), the movie starts playing immediately, doing that pseudo streaming quicktime thing where the movie downloads as it plays. These files were in the range of 18MB - 22MB.

"Looks like the feature I'm looking for is called ""Fast Start"", outline in this knowledge base article.

Quicktime's File -> Export command (not Save As) has the settings I was looking for."
