Default Video buffering, streaming, and displaying video t

Hi, I wonder if someone can help, please.

I am coding up a web application using ASP, C#, and a bit of javascript, and wish to enable videos from the server to be played in a popup window. I am using Windows Media Player.

Two specific questions I have:

1. I want the [u]video to start playing automatically as soon as possible after the popup window opens</u>, and so want to make use of the video buffer to stream. At the moment, however, the video loads but won’t start playing until the video is fully loaded. I have noticed that the windows media player is [u]not displaying at the bottom of the player the fact that it is buffering</u>, and wonder if anyone can help. I probably need to change some default parameters when popping up the window and running windows media player? Any ideas?

2. Also, I’d like to [u]show a 'gallery' of videos that are available</u>, similar in principle to that shown in windows explorer when viewing a directory of videos. I’d like the first frame of a video to be displayed to give some indication of content, and I wonder if anyone knows how to do that without going to the trouble of playing the first frame, capturing it, and displaying it as a static graphic. Any ideas?

Great if you can help !
