What you describe sounds like what's expected.
True streaming formats (like ogg) work fine.
Formats that may have the headers at the start OR the end vary - some
have the headers at the end, so they're not playable until you've
downloaded the entire file. Some have them at the start, so
progressive download/playback works.
This doesn't have anything to do specifically with GStreamer, it's
simply how the formats work.
