Cannot rewind or go forward after initially seek the video ?

Hi all,

I am seek the video before it starts play. That is working fine. All videos starts play after the seek time given and playing. That is really fine.

But I cannot rewind or forward the video after that. Because if I forward or rewind video starts to play from the seek position. Assume my seek position is from 5 minutes and I am forwarding when I am in 10th minute, the video starts again from 5 minute where my seek starts.

How can I solve this please ? Following is my current code.

file: video_url_here,
image: video_poster_here,
title: 'Play',
width: '800',
height: '500',
skin: 'glow',
autostart: 'true',
primary: 'flash'

if(resume_time > 0) {
jwplayer('myPlayer').onPlay(function() {
setTimeout(function() {
}, 500);

Instead of using resume time, you should use jwplayer().seek( jwplayer().getPosition() + YOUR_OFFSET )

"Resume Time" means the offset. But I can't this is to be working.
