I'm working on a small web site that wants to add mpeg video files to their site. Since they're not streaming the video, and the videos aren't that small, the performance degrades if the video starts to play while it's still downloading. With Windows Media Player 7 you can see the download progress so if the performance degrades, the user can see that it's because the playback has caught up to the end of the download. But with WMP 9 there doesn't seem to be any download progress feedback so a user has no way of knowing why the video just became jerky. Is there a way to get WMP 9 to give feedback on the download progress of a video? Another annoyance is that when right-clicking on a video, WMP 7 gives you a "Save as..." option whereas WMP 9 does not. The videos in question are available here: http://www.esceducation.org/media_center/index.html If anyone knows of a way to get WMP 9 to show download progress I'd be very grateful!
