Another data point: I get the exact same results when viewing in 
either Safari or Firefox on a Mac. (I haven't tried a PC yet.) The 
ffmpeg process keeps on running on the server, so that's not the 

Just guessing, but might the problem be be that ffmpeg is running 
very slowly (around 10 fps) and the player isn't getting data fast 

On a somewhat unrelated topic, should ffmpeg be able to handle 
MPEG4-transcoded files? Mine, at least, can't; it errors-out. If this 
is a fault of my version of ffmpeg, then I think the player should 
give a meaningful error message in this case, rather than simply 
doing nothing. It would prevent a lot of user head-scratching.
