Does anyone know how to do this? Kind of like how, on youTube, you can click the middle of the scrubber before that much video is loaded and it starts loading from the middle. I'm at a complete loss.
Oh, and I'm using a little netstream actionscript to play the video, not the Adobe FLVPlayback component...

I'm not used to using netstream at all, but the "scrubber" is actually called a seekbar

Check some of the results here or do similar searches using the word seekbar

first off, thanks for the response, atno/tw...

scrubber, seekbar, tomato, tomaahto (i realized halfway through that, well, tomato and tomato are the same word... duh)...

anyways, the problem i'm having is not in creating the seekbar and having it function properly - to a point... that's fine and good...

the problem i'm running into is that i'm not sure how to get the video to load from the middle if someone wants to skip ahead on a longer clip. in other words, say someone gets to a 2 minute clip and, while it's still loading second 30, they want to skip ahead to 1:30... i want to be able to get it to start loading from 1:30, like how youtube does on longer clips.

does that clarify my problem?
