Hey everyone, I've added the built-in media controls component to a skin and everything works great except the playhead isn't showing. I can even scrub through the seekbar. When I generate the output, it'll show for a brief instant but then immediately disappear. I've tested it with a video as well as a sound file with same results. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!

The tour isn't public yet but here is a screenshot of the tour and player on my local desktop while playing. There's a seekbar but no progress indication or playhead. I'm sure this is user-error. LOL! The file is a sound element only (music playing) in the skin. Does this help or do you need more? Thanks so much, 360Texas!

I may have discovered something. The seekbar may just have a problem recognizing larger files. The media element I originally posted about was a large file with several songs strung together (think of a digital mixtape). When I pointed the seekbar to a single song media element, it functions properly. Is this intentional and if so, is there a way to take the "limits" off?

And how large is large :-)

42.9 MB and the total length of the music was 46.54 minutes. It literally was a playlist in a single file. Also, is there a way to make a single seekbar control multiple music tracks. For example, if I have polygon hotspots throughout a vintage vinyl record store, can one seekbar play/pause each individual hotspot/track?

Apologies. It was an mp3 added to the skin as a sound element.
