Fabio Sonnati, posts an excellent article on Dynamic Buffering with Flash Video. This is an advanced feature that was once only available streaming with Windows Media Player 9. The flexibility behind Flash Media Server 2 allows you to build in your own custom algorithms to dynamically find a users bandwidth connection and buffer accordingly.

By adding a rather simple algorithm, the benefit is taking away from startup buffer times and buffering smarter.

In our latest consultation project at Viddler.com we helped succesfully implement this solution into a custom video player. It saved a few seconds on startup of each video played!

You gotta love this stuff!

    I have a question for you. I am doing a project on streamming video. I have to make a video player (just like Window Media Player) that stream video data from Flash Media Server. The video to play is in .flv format. I know that when I want to play a specific frame on the video file, the stream has to buffer for some time. A problem that I face is when the video is playing at second 10 and buffer is full, but when I use the seek() or the play() function to move the playhead to second 8, the buffer have to buffer again, although as I see, the player has buffer these frame.
    So do we have a way to make the playhead use the buffer that we have buffered instead of starting to buffer again everytime I move the playhead to a specific time in the video?
    Thank you
