There is a bug in Chrome MediaRecorder API:

It doesn't write video duration to the file header so it's not available util the end of video not reached.
This hack do the following:

  1. Set currentTime to some big value - 360000 seconds (100 hours)
  2. Video player reaches the end of file and determines video duration
  3. Set currentTime back to zero
  4. Seeking is now working
