Doesn't have to be solved differently, but then, for the sake of
convenience, network efficiency and QoS, it would be indeed preferable
to those big files to be accessible without being completely
downloaded, both in IRC, browser or wherever.

Normally this means (for videos at least), the link is actually a html
page with a flash plugin or a <video> tag. Either that or you will
need a video player that speaks http.
