Are there any way to play Audio, Video while Downloading?

Hello!
Are there any way to play Audio and Video while they are Downloading?
I can play Audio and Video in my NOKIA 5130 Xpress Music phone. So are there any special software for PC to do that process?

What kind of AV? Are you talking about playing the same data as being downloaded?

AV = audio/video.

EDIT: In case you are talking about flash files (.flv), the best that I'm aware of is GetFLV:

http://www.getflv.net/

But since it is a bit cantankerous and is not particularly cheap, I would recommend installing it on a trial basis to get the feel of it before buying it.

If I'm downloading a video or something, say an .avi, it creates that file "movie.avi" as a zero-byte file and another temporary file "movie.avi.part" that it downloads into (buffers) until it's done, then it writes to the original file and deletes this temporary file. I simply drag the "movie.part" file into VLC, tell it not to "fix" it, and then it plays the movie up until the point that was buffered when I started it.
