View Full Version : [ubuntu] more efficient playback

November 7th, 2009, 11:39 PM
I have noticed recently that some videos are running differently
when you move the arrow forward to skip some of the video.
Most players load the whole thing slowly and pick up after its loaded up to the point selected. Recently I saw some videos that
only start loading FROM the point you select and go from there.
That way its not wasting time loading the whole thing.
What is this technology called and what players have it.
Can I get all my videos to play this way?? info and comments..??
