    I'm trying to create .mp4 video clips that when you click on the link in a browser (I have an Evo 4G) the clip will buffer and stream in the HTC Streaming Media Player. So far I only get this error message when the streaming media player launches: "Warning - Video is not for streaming play. Would you like to download the file."

    All my clips play great when downloaded to the SDcard and they all stream flawlessly on the iPhone. Not sure if this problem is HTC specific or all Android phones. Has anyone created .mp4 clips that can be streamed from a website? What software and settings are you using? I'm using Handbrake which obviously isn't working.

    If you use quicktime, you can tag them for streaming. Some formats need to be converted in a way to be prepared for streaming. what kind of streaming server are you using?

    Most mp4 muxers have an option for IMSA standard streaming mp4 files.
