Not All Streaming Video Is The Same.
True streaming video and progressive download video are often both referred to as "streaming" video. However, there are noted differences.
Some Progressive Video Cons:
Lower video quality: A lower quality codec is used to encode video, so your video may not have the best quality.
Large files and long download times: This method dramatically increases the size of your SWF file, resulting in long publishing times and poor viewing experiences because users have to wait a considerable time to download the file before playback.
Audio sync issues: The frames-per-second (fps) rate of the video and the encoded movie must match or else the audio and video will be out of sync.
Lack of support for long video clips: Since the video downloads to the viewer's computer, there is a risk of exceeding the available hard drive space since there is no way to know this in advance.
Limited seek and navigation capabilities: Viewers cannot seek forward through the video before it is completely downloaded. Viewers need to wait until the video is downloaded before they can navigate to a particular portion of the video.
Because of this, streaming video will probably be a better choice than progressive download when you are delivering long video files in which you want to let viewers skip around, such as lengthy symposia or training materials.
User-accessible content: Because the file is downloaded, the media physically resides on the viewer's machine. Savvy users will be able to search their browser caches or temporary Internet files and access the content. This is not necessarily a bad thing if the content owner has no concerns about rights management for his or her content. In fact, in that case it may actually be useful. If the user decides to view the same video clip again before the browser cache is cleared, the file plays back from the local cache without the user having to access the web again.
However, if digital rights are a concern, streaming video is a better option.
When to Use Progressive Video:
When the video is short.
Progressive download is a perfect use for hobbyists or websites that have low traffic requirements and only need to deliver short videos. Customers who need advanced features and control over their video delivery, not to mention displaying video to large audiences (for example, several hundred simultaneous viewers), tracking and reporting video viewing statistics, or offering the best video experience should consider streaming video.
