+Notes on H264 (mp4) streaming
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+H264 files must be written in a special way so the server can stream
+them. If a H264 file is ready for progressive streaming, Flash 9 (and
+higher) will be able to play it while it's being downloaded.
+
+From a technical point of view, the server needs the H624 file to have
+its moov atoms (or boxes) in front of the data. The `qt-faststart.c`
+program - shipped with FFMpeg - rewrites H264 files so their atoms are
+placed in the required order.
