Can you stream from javascript using http? The network needs of streaming apps are very different than what are normally required for web apps. Come to think of it, how is this handled for <video>? I bet in that case js doesn't get to touch it either and there is some special stuff happening. I hope it doesn't require the downloading of the entire video.
