I have been given a QuickTime file to place on a web site for my client. I requested the file be prepared for streaming using "Fast Start - Compressed Header" so that the video with start to play as soon as QuickTime player has buffered enough. (We will not be using a QuickTime Streaming Server for this video)
I am unsure if the file provided to me meets my request. For one, it seems to be am MPEG4 file, not an MPEG4 video file wrapped in a QuickTime
.mov container. But even when I export a short ~10 second clip using "fast Start - Compressed Header" and open that in QuickTime player, nothing I can see under Movie Properties or Movie Information shows me that I have added a fast start header.
How can I determine if a QuickTime movie file is prepared for streaming using Fast Start, Compressed Header?
