Swift supports HTTP Range requests, so pseudo-streaming is fully support (sometimes just called progressive download).

This means you can quickly and easily serve video from Swift with compatible javascript players such as jwplayer, or on any decent browser with the HTML5 video tag.

Do you know if that would meet your needs?
