[FLVTool2-users] >10 MB files & On2 encoding

Hi,

I've been using phpstream* in conjunction with flvtool2 to stream
FLV files in  Flash 8. However, only files under about 10 MB
(haven't been able to  determine an exact limit) seem to be able
to seek back and forth in the timeline. Bigger files act like FLVs
without metadata and phpstream fails to perform the seek.

Is there a known cause for this? Or should I look into phpstream  
further?

Also, I have never been able to inject metadata into files encoded
as On2 (Flash 8). Is this a known limitation of flvtool2?

Trying to add metadata to an On2-FLV, I get:
$ flvtool2 -U test-On2.flv

TIA for any hints you can give me on either issue.
