"Fast-Streaming” for Flash Media Server
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.
You gotta love this stuff!
