How to enable enhanced seeking for RTMP playback

To turn on enhanced seeking for RTMP Flash based playback, add the following property to the Streams/Properties in [install-dir]/conf/[application]/Application.xml. Use this property when seeking to a precise location is needed. Wowza Media Server will calculate the exact location and start playback from that point in time. Enhanced seek will require more bandwidth.

     <!-- videoKeyFrame, enhanced -->
The Wowza Media Server built-in default configuration has this property set to videoKeyFrame. With this setting, the Server will use the closest previous keyframe for the playback starting point. This setting will satisfy most workflows.
