anyway - file that is available through FTP/HTTP or similar way you can
stream too. just without any extra tools both under windoze and unix.

You're aware of UDP-based real-time streaming protocols, right?

yes it is, but we talked about youtube-like services. it's not UDP based

very well). In streaming, lost packets are tolerated, as long as the
transmission doesn't "hang" (e.g. due to retransmissions). Here, UDP-
based protocols are often a better choice.

youtube player, and most players just use big buffer and download as fast as it can until buffer is filled. because of this temporary "hangs" due to packet loss isn't a problem, while you get movies always complete.
