 When I upload a mp4 video to my test WordPress installation (running on a
 free hosting service), the video does not load and play right away in
 Firefox, which requires flash player. This is because many video
 converters/exporters (such as Openshot, which I used for the video) do not
 web optimize the output. The flash media element wants to download the
 whole mp4 before playing at all.

 WordPress should swap the index to the beginning (like
 http://renaun.com/blog/code/qtindexswapper/), so the video loads right
 away in the player. Attached is the exported video and a screencast demo.
