So I am capturing the fastforward/rewind key and moving the position of the video when those keys are pressed. But every time I set video.seek to a certain number, say 20. After the video is resumed, I found out that video.position is rollbacked automatically to like 19. I also have a timer to show the current time. So my timer will be like 20, 19, 20, 21, etc. I don't know why this auto rollback is happening and I can't google anything userful. So I am here hoping I could get some help. Thank you!
Re: video position automatically rolls back after seek is se
What format is your video? With HLS (and possibly SmoothStreaming and DASH), the Roku will only resume at a segment boundary, so you can't seek into a segment. In your example, if the segment starts at 19 seconds and is 10 seconds long, if you seek to anything between 19 and 29 seconds, it will resume at 19.
