FLV Progressive download - takes too long too start! Going crazy!

I have a small, satirical website: http://www.quantummirage.com/CSFH/home.html

And each page has a .flv set to progressively download. On all of them, there is a long pause before the video auto plays (the length seems to be related to the file size). I know the video should be starting much quicker, can anyone help me?
