Does anyone have success exporting a Quicktime .mov from Vegas as a Fast Start progressive download file? I have been banging my head all day trying to figure out why my file loads completely before starting to play.

A little more detail on my HTML and embedding of the QuickTime file:

I use Dreamweaver MX and have a component called fiXMoive. It basically allows you to embed a QuickTime .mov into an HTML web page. Here is the code it generates:

<!-- START QUICKTIME CONTENT -->
<object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" width="320"height="256" codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab">
<param name="SRC" value="mymovie.mov">
<param name="AUTOPLAY" value="true">
<param name="CONTROLLER" value="true">
<embed src="mymovie.mov" width="320" height="256" autoplay="true" controller="true" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"></embed>
</object>
<!-- END QUICKTIME CONTENT -->

For some reason it loads the entire movie before playing the clip. How can I get it to actually perform"progressive download" and start as soon as enough has buffered?????
