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

Open in new window

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.
