Seekbar fuctionality issues

Have selected a seekbar in the player controls of the templates as well as the "allow user to seek within seekbar", but when publishing and playing the seek bar emediately goes to the end and shows presentation complete.  Pause button doesn't seem to work either, just starts video over.  It has worked fine in the past with many many video.  What may have happened?

Hi MB,

When you inserted the movie, did you choose to play it in sync with the slide or independent of the slide?  If you chose independent, then the default slide length is 5 seconds for a slide that does not contain animation or sound.

Can you try reinserting your video & selecting to play in sync with the slide?

If you continue to have problems, please let us know what file type the video is.
