Is the time that you are jumping to already downloaded?

You can seek within the already downloaded portion of the media file.

To seek into the non-yet-downloaded portion of the media file, you need serverside support for streaming (RTMP {FMS, Wowza, Red5}, streamscript, streaming modules for Apache2, nginx, LightTPD).

For getting the time, see: **

Do you have some code or a test page to look at?

Seeking only requires using the player reference object and sendEvent().bc.. document.getElementById('playerID').sendEvent('SEEK', 12.5);

For example, in a button:bc.. <button onclick="document.getElementById('playerID').sendEvent('SEEK', 12.5);">SEEK to 12.5</button>
