    Question Force Caching of FLV files

    Is there way force the browser to retain previously viewed FLV files? I've noticed using the normal netstream set-up that even if you've fully loaded and viewed a video it will have to load it again from scratch each time you come back to it. Shouldn't the file be in the user's cache?

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, it does cache them but it's dependant on your browser. If you have IE then you can open your cache directory and see the downloaded video file. Different browsers handle caching differently and it depends on how you have your cache configured. I used to have IE set to wipe the cache each time I closed the browser. I don't do that now but it's a good example of what I mean.
