I'm wondering if the private file system has a timeout. Because after many tries of watching a video uploaded by the file system both in public and private mode, with a low speed connection, the video from private always stops loading at around 20 minutes of playing. The same video, from public, works perfect ( it keeps loading after 20 minutes, until the end ).

I've tried on many computers, with different videos, always the same.

Can someone explain me how the private files works, so i can try to find a workaround.

Sorry for my english.

Thanks !

There is an issue with streaming video from the private folder because Drupal handles the permissions rather than apache. Use the resumable download module to overcome this. You should be able to enable the module and you are good to go.
