FLV seek component.


I'm wanting to add the functionality to the flv seekbar UI component so that when you click on it, the flv seeks to that point.
I've found a couple if AS3 examples but I need to do this in AS2.

Would anyone have any examples of the AS2 needed to achieve this or provide links to any reference/tutorials?

Thanks in advance.

following code will do the magic:

// replace 'this' with the reference of base movieClip where seekBar and FLVPlayback instance resides
// replace "seekBar_mc" with the instance name of "SeekBar"
// replace "FLVPlybk" with the instance name of "FLVPlayBack instance.
var myListener = new Object();
var _this = this; 
myListener.onMouseDown = function() {
	if (_this.seekBar_mc.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse, true)) {
		_this.FLVPlybk.playheadPercentage = _this.seekBar_mc._xmouse;

Hi Aneesh,

Following on from your solution above. Would you know how (or if possible) to get the hand cursor to appear when rolling over the seekbar?

Using something like :

_this.seekBar_mc.useHandCursor = true;

doesn't seem to work.
