I would like to parse an video file such as mp4 and extrapolate the different components of it. How do I do that?

You can't do it using jQuery, that's for sure. What "components" do you want to extrapolate?

I'm not exactly sure what your final intentions are or what you are planning to do with the data, but it looks like there are a few libraries out there you might consider trying to help read your files :
I'm sure that there are plenty more, but those might help point you in the right direction or be what you need. You might consider searching around on open-source sites like github and Codeplex as well.

I would like to parse whatever I need to have full control of it. My intention right now is just to take control of progressive download. The "<video>' control is supposed to default to progressive download from what I hear, but it waits till the complete
file is downloaded no matter how I configure "preload", etc. So I am just trying to solve that problem for now.
I am looking for something similar to what "videoreader" does that Mathworks has out. I don't use it, or have it, but it looks like it would give me the information I am needing.

That's not going to work. The MathWorks video reader works within the mathworks application and isn't designed to be in a web page. You don't have the level of control over the file that you need in order to do it.
Also, the progressive download typically works when you're running an actual media server designed to stream the video out properly. A normal web server isn't setup to do the streaming that is needed for truly streaming a video file. In these scenarios,
it just waits generally until the file loads though this also depends on the browser.

Is there a plug-in for Windows Server 2012 to stream you recommend? I have live Smooth Streaming installed, but get the impression it is for Silverlight.

if the browser supports the video tag, it should stream fine use this link to test:
this site will let you see all the controls and events the video tag supports. if you browser supports this site, then the problem is your server code is not written correctly. which video streaming server are you using?

I have Microsoft live smooth streaming installed in iis 8.5. But I haven't actually used it. Is there something you recommend?

My server is progressively downloading now. Not sure what I changed, but it is working great now.
