I'm using JWPlayer to switch between the HTML5 video player and Flash depending on the browser. However, seeking does not work in the HTML5 video player after I've uploaded a video to Sitefinity.
I've tested referencing this video in the file system before uploading, and seeking works. But, after uploading it to Sitefinity, it simply does not. The mime type is coming back as video/mp4 in both cases. I've also tried waiting until the video has completely loaded and then trying seeking to check if perhaps the video had not completely loaded.
I've also tried created a video library that uses the file system storage rather than the database storage, but still no seeking. Based on the JWPlayer documentation, it seems there may be some meta data that has gone missing that is used for seeking.
Has this happened to anyone else or does anyone have any ideas what would cause this?
