I have some .flv files on my site and I've been using JWplayer to embed them into my webpages. The embedding looks like this:
<embed flashvars="file=/tmp/<?php echo $row["location"]; ?>&autostart=true" allowfullscreen="true" allowscripaccess="always" id="player1" name="player1" src="/jwplayer/player.swf" width="500" height="350" />
The file is coming from directory tmp and is is saved in a format *.flv. Recently, I have been noticing really slow streaming. The video will stop almost every 5 seconds. This is happening on multiple computers on multiple networks and I'm not having the same problem on different sites (i.e. youtube). I'm hosting the site through Yahoo Small Business and I have a lot of video files in the tmp directory.
Could anyone recommend me a way to allow my videos to be streamed faster?
