I think you might be confused about how much data is being transfered. What you suggest would merely take away the ability to watch ANY of the recording before it had finished transferring - not really speed it up.

A full strength 802.11b signal will get you about 3.5-4.5 Mbps without WEP enabled. With WEP enabled, expect 2.5-3.5 Mbps. As you put walls and distance between your wireless adapter and your access point, your speed will drop.
