[Ffmpeg-devel] WMV Seeking

Hey Guys, 

This may or may not be the right list to post in and if it isn't I apologize
before hand.

I am trying to stream WMV videos across the net by embedding it in to the
webpage. Everything is working ok with the files being created using
msmpeg4v2 and I am quite happy with the quality.

The problem is this. The person watching the video is not able to use the
slider bar in WMP until the clip is fully cached on their computer. Once the
entire clip is cached and the download progress bar ends the slider bar to
seek to any point in the movie works.

My commandline is this :
ffmpeg -i /tmp/part_1.avi -i /tmp/part_1.mp3 -s 640x480 -b 1200 -ac 1 -ab 32
-hq -vcodec msmpeg4v2 -y 204/1_hi.wmv 

The recent version of ffmpeg seems to break the movs I create so I am still
using an older version of ffmpeg although not too old

Any light anyone can shed of this would be greatly appreciated.
