We were trying video controls fast forward and rewind using the .step method. It didn't work, is this the correct method to use?
.step()? Where are you seeing that? Fast forward is done by setting tv.MediaPlayer.speed = 2 and rewind is done by setting tv.mediaPlayer.speed = -1. Ideally, you should try to use the Framework 1.1 KONtx.videoplayer which gives you convenience fastforward() and rewind() methods as it will abstract away any difference between platforms.
Also as a point of reference, fast forward and rewind aren't supported on most platforms at this time. :m-Jeremy
