.MOV on the Web

Ignore the random content of these videos, but do you know why this one:
has the download progress bar, and this one:
has to wait for the whole video to load, then shows it.

I'm trying to create a display like the first link.

   Thanks for any help!

(The difference is that the first one loads a white frame and the grey menu bar right away, then shows the download progress through the "time slider." The second one just shows a white frame without the menu bar and waits until the whole video to load until the menu bar even shows up)

RE: .MOV on the Web

most likely, the difference is in the way these movies were encoded. quicktime allows a "progressive download" option when compressing which starts playing the movie while it is still downloading. that seems to have been the case with the first movie.
