Flash Video Progress Bar

Progress Bar Dragging only works currently with Flash Media Server

I had a look at this issue and to get the playhead to be manipulated manually requires a different set up from the one we have.

We can only do this in Flash if the video is actually streaming from a Flash Media Server (aka Flash Communication Server);

This is what happens on sites like you tube.

Because the videos aren't deployed from this server the playhead can' t be moved - a limitation of Flash.

Check out this link for verification of this - to set the play action at a certain time can only occur with the server aforementioned
