Issues (maybe error) in seek accuracy

For short videos (in my case a 31s video) I've noticed that seeking to say 5s (.call('plugin[video].seek(5)')) seems to take the video not to 5s, but to 0s; randomly, seeking at 14s, results in the video being taken to the 12s mark (as retrieved by .get('plugin[video].time')). This issue extends to the default seek bar, which has low accuracy on click. This seems odd, why is this? I am using krpano 1.19.

This was asked over here : seek accuracy in 2012, but there was no answer there, and it seemed to see greater accuracy than what I'm seeing.

I would like to basically skip to a specific frame (ideally by time or percent, but any other way is fine too) in the video

so far I know it's only possible to seek to 'keyframes'.

That means if you want more accurate seeking, use lower keyframe intervals when encoding the video (but note that the video filesize can increase due this).

Best regards,
