Flash Video (FLV) does not show correct time and/or cannot seek (no index or valid metadata

If your Flash Video has any of the following issues:

- Does not show the correct duration time within the player
- You cannot fast forward / seek the timeline to later positions that have already been downloaded / cached
- The Flash video starts after the entire clip is downloaded (not immediately)

Then your .flv file may not be indexed or may not have proper "metadata". Most current Flash video encoding tools do include this automatically however there are some that do not.

If you believe your file is lacking this important metadata, please try another encoder or use the following tool on your current file:


Download both and unzip to the same folder:


These are Windows programs and can be used to "inject metadata" into your already made FLV file.
