Can I seek through a video (Fast Forward and Rewind)?

When streaming any video through PlayOn, PlayOn is creating the file in real time as it is being watched. In other words, the "end" of the file is not yet available to watch when you start playing it. It is much like a DVR recording of a live broadcast. You can pause it, rewind it, and then fast forward it a bit up until you "catch up" to the live broadcast, but you can not go past it.

If you pause a video and allow a buffer to build, you'll then be able to fast forward through the amount of video that has been processed to that point.  So, pausing a stream for 30 minutes, for example, will allow you to fast forward through 30 minutes of video.
