[Red5] Prebuffering video with Red5

I don't know. I never got the chance to play around with FMS (its too
expensive for my current budget :( ). I'll check if there is a
development license or something like that...
The functionality I'm searching for seems to be supported at a number
places that use video streaming. It is, however, entirely possible that
all those places are using progressive download rather than streaming...
Anyhow, it seems to be a problem if the user has to wait several seconds
for the player to re-buffer each time playback is resumed...
