A minor problem I've been seeing in the past year or so is that sometimes the playback position gets stuck - that is, if an episode has already been started (say, on another device or I'm re-watching), then attempting to click the bar to the beginning does not work.

Suppose I go to play an episode that's already half-watched. I attempt to put the playback cursor thing at the beginning, and it appears to work, but when I resume playback, it skips back to the same point. The weird thing is that if I put it at the beginning, and then at a point slightly after, while still paused, it will then play from that point correctly.

It's quite frustrating when I forget about that workaround, as without it, there is no other way to restart an episode on PC. At best, I lose ~3 seconds of the beginning of the episode, which isn't a big deal, but I thought I should make a post about this issue, anyway.

It remains an issue across several different browsers and versions, as well as several versions of Flash.

I'm inclined to believe this is more a Flash problem than anything, because it's trash basically anywhere I go. Like I said, it's not a big deal as there is an easy workaround, but it really shouldn't be happening in the first place.

I'm wondering if other users have run into this or if I'm just exceptionally unlucky with Flash player issues.

Pause the player and add this to the end of the URL (or change it if it already has a time):

?t=00

So it looks like this, then hit enter:
