Progressive downloading your flv through your Player:
If you are using your own flash player for progressive download delivery
of Flash video, you must upload your flv file to your PlayStream account,
inside the Progressive folder. Then take the stream link found on the
Info page, replace the word “easylink” with “progressive”.
See example below:
Stream link: http://easylink.playstream.com/servicename/progressive/myFlashMovie.flv
Replace it as follows:

server or web host, please contact your hosting provider’s support
department. PlayStream will be happy to help link to media hosted on our
CDN, however we cannot provide support for another hosting provider.
