Is it possible to play a .3gp (or .mp4) video file through the standard browser via http progressive download with html/javascript

I am brand new to BlackBerry mobile web dev.  I am trying to open up a .3gp (or an .mp4 file)  via a standard anchor tag.  I've read some posts that say it's only possible to stream video to a the standard BlackBerry browser, and other say it's possible to progressively download with a standard http request.  Is there a good resource somewhere I can reference, or could someone be kind enough to set the record straight.  Again I'm trying to keep the entire deliverable on a web page using html and javascript and not an application using java.

FYI the target device is the Curve 8520.
