player working, seeking forward not working, unless video charged completely

Hello, here is the player i'm working on :

the problem is, to use the seeking buttons under the player, i have to wait that the part that has to be reached is loaded.

here is my code :


<script type='text/javascript' src='jwplayer/jwplayer.js'></script>

<div id='mediaplayer'></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
'flashplayer': 'jwplayer/player.swf',
'id': 'playerID',
'width': '720',
'height': '404',
'file': 'jwplayer/video2.mp4',
'image': 'jwplayer/preview2.jpg',
'skin': 'skins/',
'plugins': {
'fbit-1': {},
'sharing-2': {
'link': '',

<li><a href="#" onclick="jwplayer().seek(0);">bonjour a tous</a> (00:00)</li>
<li><a href="#" onclick="jwplayer().seek(30);">accelerer le telechargement</a> (00:24)</li>
<li><a href="#" onclick="jwplayer().seek(50);">tout un ensemblde de services google</a> (00:48)</li>
<li><a href="#" onclick="jwplayer().seek(60);">personnaliser son telephone</a> (00:56)</li>

@bertrand – You need to use streaming in order to seek ahead to unbuffered parts of the video.

Example from my source:

<script type="text/javascript" src="player/jwplayer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
flashplayer: "player/player.swf",
controlbar: "bottom",
file: "file.mp4",
width: "450",
height: "300",
provider: "http",
skin: "player/",
put this in your code: provider: "http"
this code will allow to seek.

Note that seeking will still only work if the server supports seeking, which is the documentation page that Ethan linked to.
