Default Lighttpd installation and video forwarding


I am streaming my videos through port 81, however, when I click on the middle of a video I do not get what I was expecting (forwarding). Does this have to do with my lighttpd installation, or with the software I am using? I am using a framework where I think all that has to be done is set a '1' on a lighttpd streaming value, and it should be good to go if lighttpd is installed correctly (I did it once before and it was as easy as that and installing lighttpd, but don't know what's going on now)

I am using lighttpd 1.5 on CentOS. Streaming through port 81. Here are some of the lines that I added to lighttpd.conf and modules.conf: http://paste.lighttpd.net/2517

From what I can see in firebug, the video is being streamed through mydomain.com:81. The Live HTTP headers of Firefox also show no problem; they display the video being streamed using lighttpd and octet/stream as application.

Any input that could help me deal with this?

Thank you very much!

There's something wrong with the player. Try to stream with VLC, should scrub videos fine!
