If you're looking for live streaming (of an event), that's true.  But if you just want to stream prerecorded content, Media Mill will automatically do that in certain cases.

If you have a flash derivative that's larger than 100 megabytes, the media mill flash player automatically streams it instead of doing progressive download.  So, if you were server a two hour lecture, the viewer could skip to any point in the video without waiting.  (you can disable this entirely in your preferences)

If you wanted to force media mill to stream all flash content, regardless of size, you could make a subclip of the media that started at 00:00 and ended at the end of the clip - subclips are always streamed.

it is my understanding that mediamill does not allow for streaming..only progressive download.
