That's a good question, trond. I think I've posed it somewhere, but it bears repeating. I note that on a lot of other sites that serve Flash, you can see the progress of the download getting ahead of the current point in the playback. Maybe the delivery of data to be buffered is turned off on purpose, to cut down on server load?
