Stream file rather than downloading

ES File Explorer on Android has a useful feature. When you connect to a remote server (SFTP, FTP, WebDAV, etc.) and open a file, it serves the file via a built-in web server, which allows the opening application to read only the parts of the file that it needs to. This allows skipping around without media files or extracting a specific file from a large archive without downloading the whole file.

I wish I could do this on Windows as well.

What do you mean by "FileStreams"? Are you sure you want the same, what this topic is about?

Streaming videos

I would like such a feature to stream videos over FTP from my NAS. Entering each video URL into VLS is very inconvenient compared to double clicking in WinSCP.

Same here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would like such a feature to stream videos over WinSCP protocol from my PC. The protocol is "much safer" than "Samba", but much less convenient in terms of viewing video and listening Audio by not able to "streaming"

I need to be able to pass a stream as well.

I am breaking the news to my boss right now that WINSCP does not support the transfer of streams.
