    NetStream: Minimum delay for seek?

    PhilipKeiter Level 2

      How long do you need to let the stream play before it is safe to perform a seek? And is there a way to know when it is safe other than just giving it some time?
      For example, if you:
      ns.play(source);
      ns.seek(5);
      ns.pause();
      Then the video will no longer be playable.
       
      But if you:
      ns.play(source);
      ---wait one second with a timer--
      ns.seek(5);
      ns.pause();
      then playback will work correctly.
       
      But a second is a long time. So I want to reduce it to the actual needed amount or wait for a certain flag. Waiting for full buffer is not enough, nor is waiting for metadata.

       

      Assume I'm not connecting to Flash Media Server.

       

      Thanks,
