The ticket 8206 add pseudostreeming, allow you to seek to arbitrary
position, not only in the buffered part.
It's based on the pseudostreming plugin made by flowplayer and freely
available. I've just
simplified it to only restart the streming with a start position passed by
the url: to ffmpeg as "start offset".
I've tested it with firefox on ubuntu and safari on OSX and it worked fine
for me, but I didn't tested on iexplorer.
Yes, I should have done a description from the start...
