FLVplayback seek problem

Hi All,
I am using as3 and Adobe flash CS3 and am facing a problem regarding video seek event. Many a times, though I issue seek command on the FLVPlayback object, I do not get the "seeked" event. I am seeking at different play head position than current. I couldn't find when and why this happens. It is important for me to get this event as my flow depends on this.
Also, sometimes I get this event and I start playing the video assuming it is seeked to desired position, but it starts playing from the beginning. I am really frustrated because of this.
Please suggest some solution for this. Thanks in advance.
m_oFlvPlayer.addEventListener(VideoEvent.SEEKED, onseek);
    ...
    ...
    ...
    private function onSeeked(e:VideoEvent):void
    {
    //seeked to desired position, now play the video
        m_oFlvPlayer.play();
    }

This is most likely due to the keyFrames.  The seek in the flash player will jump to the last key frame.  Re-render your clips to force a key frame every 1 second and u can just to any second and it will seek smoothly.

We use embedded cue points in the flv video file at certain intervals, and we cannot force keyframe at every 1 second.
I am having this problem only at the first time after setting source. I seek to a specific cuepoint on receving the METADATA_RECEIVED event. But it fails to send SEEKED event sometimes. If i receive the SEEKED event successfully here then thereafter when i seek to a different cuepoint it works perfectly and everytime i get the SEEKED event.
