Property values

Type: Boolean

One of the values in the Property Values section.

Remarks

Some streaming formats do not support seeking. The canSeek property should indicate whether a media type supports seeking. Some formats, such as streaming media, do not report the correct information regarding their ability to seek.

Media must be seekable (canSeek = true), for the clipBegin property or the clipEnd property to work on that media.
