Your link points directly to the file, it is not streaming, it is downloading.

Yes, that is how it works in Windows/Firefox. There is a long delay until it is completely downloaded and then plays. However, when I use the same file online with a Mac it starts immediately. Why is there a difference in how the computers display the slide show -- immediate (Mac) versus delayed (Windows)?

Nooo, the difference is not Win vs Mac.  My guess is, it is your QuickTime file.  Under Windows QuickTime is a huge nuisance and I doubt anyone uses it.  On the other hand, your Mac supports it, probably because you installed it.
