Is it possible to download a flv file and start playing this file as soon as lets say 1MB is downloaded?

Now i just download the whole file so the user has to wait quite some time


                self.download(str(el.firstChild.nodeValue), folder + "test.flv")
                xbmc.Player(xbmc.PLAYER_CORE_MPLAYER).play(folder + "test.flv")
    def download(self, source, destination):
            loc = urllib.URLopener()
            loc.retrieve(source, destination)
            self.showMessage("Download complete!")
            self.showMessage("Failed downloading!")

or can xbmc just a play a url like http://....babla.flv (mm shoud ve tried that first tongue.gif )

if you have suggestions or examples ... smile.gif
