When selecting streaming media (RealPlayer & Quicktime) you need to have the correct software installed. The software will calculate the download time and start to play when it decides the download will be completed before the end of playing. If the download becomes slower, the playing will stop.

The video lasts for 11 minutes and the download time will be at least this.

Do not try to download the MPEG file down a telephone line unless you are not affected by the phone bill.
