Hi,
Just have 2 quick questions about pseudo-streaming video files in java. Firstly if I pseudo-stream video files does that mean they are not downloaded to the users computer and the action takes place on the server? Secondly is there any way of implementing this using the apache tomcat server, I have read the following topic:
http://tomcat.10.n6.nabble.com/HTTP-pseudostreaming-in-tomcat-td4343224.html
which says it can be done.
Can it be server-side configured like it is done with the lighttpd server, which allows a server configuration setting to allow pseudo-streaming to take place. Currently using the flash player for videos.
Thank you.

Streaming videos are still downloaded. The only difference is that they don't have to be downloaded completely before being played. The client still does most of the work.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
