Yes, that seems very likely.
What would be most interesting to me is the complete Range header your
application sends to the server when seeking. Also, the HTTP status
code returned for the requests both with 2.2.9-10+lenny9 and
2.2.9-10+lenny10 (probably either 200 or 206). Are the video files
static files or are they generated by some application?
Thanks for your help.
