Jeff, This can be done with some clever server-side code, a properly coded media player and flv's with metadata injected. All the sources you need are here: http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?item=Flash_Video_Player including a php implementation of the server-side script. Read his code for that player and you will learn a lot.
If you don't use php you could do something similar in java, coldfusion(saw a script smewhere) or .NET. Or use lightHTTPD as descibed here: http://blog.lighttpd.net/articles/2006/03/09/flv-streaming-with-lighttpd For metadata injection there are a couple tools you can use: http://www.buraks.com/flvmdi/ Or: http://inlet-media.de/flvtool2 Also, read up on this for more background info: http://www.flashcomguru.com/index.cfm/2005/11/2/Streaming-flv-video-via-PHP- take-two This should give you a good start.
