cloudfront pseudo streaming http

I have search the forum top to bottom and I haven't found a clear answer to this.

---- my situation----
cloudfront distribution (web/download, not rtmp)
latest build of jwplayer (hosted) 6.8.1646
h.264 video (mp4)
chrome on mac
My videos are 60-90 minutes in length.

When I play the video, the renderingMode is "html5" and everything is working, including the playbackSpeed feature (which is key).

It seems to be straight progressive download, I cannot play the video ahead of the download. I need the ability to seek ahead of the download. So I guess I need "pseudo streaming"?

How can I get it working so I can seek to any point in the video without waiting for the download to complete.

There is nothing special about my setup, but I'll post it anyways.

'playlist': [{ 'file': '' }],
'displaytitle': false,
'modes': [{ type: "html5" }]

Thanks much!

You need an actual pseudo streaming module installed? Does CF actually provide pesudo streaming?

Spoke with AWS, and they said this is not possible in a flash player.

Yes, because it is not using psuedo streaming, that’s why. However, html5 already supports this natively.
