Fast Forwarding Stream (broken)


When using primary: "flash", I am unable to fast forward or skip ahead in my stream.

However when I use primary: "html" the fast forward option works perfectly fine.

I would very much like to use primary: "flash" as my default player. At this point advertisers have not fully adopted html and I do not want my fill rate to suffer.

Is there a bug when using primary: "flash" that would cause this to happen?

Common Settings:
primary: "html",
stretching: 'fill',
width: '100%',
aspectratio: "16:9",

flash doesn't allow mp4 seek ahead.

I've been doing this in flash / mp4 since JWplayer 5.0. I've had my streams online for two years now and just jumped from JWplayer 5 to JWplayer 7.

So this worked in the past, but does not work now?
