Default Not able to skip ahead in WMP

Does anybody notice when you download a video file and it's not complete you can't skip ahead in the file because it's not complete? Is there anyway to get around this or any other media players that can skip ahead without any problems? Thanks.

I know exactly what you are talking about and it only happens with porn videos....lol..j/k.. but yes there is really no way to get around it because the owner or creator messed up and made as a "streaming" video which is why you usually see the 256kpbs..or something down while the movie is playing...I have found if you convert that file with TMPGenc and create a new MPEG out of it, you can then move the movie to any position.
