I have a video file that is downloaded to the users filesystem and then played using the HTML5 video player and a flash player(requires flash installed)
Chrome buffers this video file even though it is playing it from the filesystem, as a developer I have no way to stop this.
The problem is I start playing the video even before it is completed downloading, and so chrome's HTML5 video player buffers blank frames, I need to make the player do no buffering, and read the file from the filesystem.
Also I am not able to get a 3rd party flash player to play the content as it does not have access to the chrome filesystem(not sure how I can give it access)
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Open http://html5p2p-1.cs.hut.fi
2. The video file may not play smoothly,
3. Please note that you have to close all instances of chrome and open it with the ./chrome --unlimited-quota-for-files flag, as chrome doesn't have an interface to control this feature as of now.
