Extensive buffering problems while playing video

Steps to reproduce

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start playing a streamed recording with the engage player
2. Let the video play for a moment (1 minutes)
3. If everything works fine, start to move the playhead forward / backward, pause and play the video.

Actual Results:
The video should play smoothly (after a short buffering time).

Expected Results:
The video is buffered for 1-2 seconds before to play for 1-2 s and then is buffered again for 1-2 s before to continue. It can continue like that for 1 minute sometime.

Workaround (if any):
A solution could be to extend the buffer size of the player.

To solve this buffering problem, an optional "bufferTime" parameter has been added to the engage player. The url parameter "bt" can be used to set the buffer size.

check the following page for more information about the recommended buffer size:
