seek does not work on rtmp jwplayer v7

It shows a black screen with refresh circling. I know the video is there and autostart works fine. The seeked event works fine if manually scroll to any position. any idea why seek function does not work?

var playerInstance = jwplayer("_video");
file: "rtmp://",
width: "100%",
aspectratio: "4:3"

playerInstance.on('play', function() {

playerInstance.on('seek', function() {

playerInstance.on('ready', function() {;

Hi, there.

In order to do what you are looking to do, you’d want to wrap .seek() inside of a .on(“play”) event, not .on(“ready”).

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
