Oh Reuben Thank you,
Finally an answer!

So for streaming static mp4 files no need high CPU using?
Can you give me any example?
What you mean about chopping up into fragments.
I know my questions like easy to use ones but I'm new in this files and
I'm researching for days but still cant stream an mp4 file.
