HTML5 Video Player: No Buffer Control, No access from flash

Postby rich_m » Mon Aug 01, 2011 10:52 am ... l?id=91185


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
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.

I don't understand what you're trying to do. Why do you need to control buffering?
