Default [AS3] FLVplayback SeekBar Accuracy

greetings, im very new to flash and actionscript.

i have a flvplayback control and a seekbar linked to it:

ActionScript Code:
flvPlayback.seekBar = mySeekBar;

the issue being the seekbar is very inaccurate.

i am using progressive download and even when i wait until the complete movie (mp4) is downloaded the seekbar is clumsy.

it never starts from the point where i let go the seekbar, always goes back to some extent and then plays.

i am not looking for sample code, rather an insight into what else i need to study to get the seekbar working properly.

when i let the download complete and press the play bytton the seekbar seems to move/update accurately! adding to my confusion.

thank you and look forward to some help.

any reason why no one has commented on this issue?

i think this a common issue to face when starting with FLVplayback control?

it turns out exact seek positions is not possible with progressive download, (even when it has been downloaded completely) only works when in FMS-capable servers.

not sure what a FMS-capable server is but im glad that it is not an issue that was caused by my coding.

just wanted to share my findings for the future for everyone else.
