    I believe because it's streaming and not stored (fully downloaded) so you can't fast forward info. that is not there yet.

    This is only what I think, I may be way off.

    dont worry happens to everybody, their are streaming videos and stored videos that you can forward and some you cant.its probably the way it was encoded, to my knowledge there is nothing that can correct it yet.

    happens when the index of the file has been mixed up or corrupt. you can get hold of programs that strip and rebuild the index for media files.
