Can not pause FLV files which have no metadata #89
I'm using jPlayer to play user submitted FLV files. They sometimes have no metadata. With those files, pause is not working and video keeps playing.
Too bad FLV playing has not the same love than other formats :(
Yeah I figured it was the:
metaDataReady = false;
...property that needed to be set true in order to hack/fix the problem.
The problem with the metadata not being available is that the duration of the FLV is not known, so most of the information cannot be calculated... I'm talking about progress bars and so on... In many ways, without metadata the FLV is more like a live-stream, where you just play it, maybe pausing and playing it again along the way, until it reaches the end. You can not change the currentTime using the progress bars, since it has no knowledge of how long the track is.
I will add this issue to the docs as a known issue and reopen it then.
