Default Is it possible to stream video while downloading video on ‘Android’ using secure application

Is it possible to stream video while downloading video on ‘Android’ using secure application?

I have a https secure web application. This application is exclusively made for mobile devices (e.g Iphone, BB, Android etc...) called as Mobi web in otherwords, I have an web site that user will browse on a mobile device. I have some video files loaded on this site. These videos can be played by clicking on corresponding hyperlink of respective video. When I click on these hyperlinks from Iphone or Ipad , these videos get streamed on screen and gets played properly. Till this point all works smooth and fine.

Now when I test the same functionality on ‘Android’ my video file gets downloaded on device but don’t get played of its own. Initially it was concluded that converting these files to indigenous device compatible video file types will help video files to get auto streamed. Hence I used a converter to convert all type of video files to ‘3gp’ for ‘Android’ and tested but found that in this case also, the video files gets downloaded and do not get played on their own. I tried various approaches to download video files like I used Response.Redirect, then I used binary reader and then the 3gp handler. Nothing worked.

Does anybody know how to play video while downloading on Android?

Thanks in advance!
