IE takes long to start MP4 video ("Video For Everybody" code generator) Help!

append delete Apprentice

Hi there.
First of all, thank you very much for putting this easy neat solution to play a video in many browsers/OS.
I was researching in Google for a long time and all I found was complicated, shallow and "for-experts-only" answers.
Until I found this VFEG!
I have a little problem, though.
I tested it in Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari (Mac), and in all of them the video starts immediately. Even after cleaning the cache.
But in Windows IE 8 and 9 in Win XP and 7, the movie won't start until, I think, is completely downloaded.
Is there a piece of code that can be added to make it star playing while downloading to the cache as it happens with the other browsers/movie versions?

The mp4 movie is 59 MB (Takes 4 min to start i IE)
The webm movie is 180 MB
The ogv movie is 72 MB

Thank you for your help,
