Marker(s) not rendering when an ASX StartTime other than 0:0:0.0 is used

Hi Guys,

I noticed that markers do not render when setting a non-zero start time in a custom ASX file (see Example below).  The event code to render the markers (_media_MarkerReached) is firing, but the timing appears to be offset (earlier) by the starttime value specified in the ASX.

For a little background...
I am using the player to point to a single media file, via an ASX, to be able to play only portions (or segments) of media.
I am creating 1 or more ASX files to wrap the media file, and using an appropriate starttime and duration to control what will play back.

Example:   Display a timeline for Test.wmv, starting 20 seconds into the media, and play for a duration of 20 minutes, 39 seconds...

<ASX version="3.0">
<Entry>
   <starttime value="0:0:20.0"/>
   <duration value="0:20:39.0"/>
   <ref HREF="mms://localhost/test.wmv"/>
</Entry>
</ASX>

Any ideas on how to resolve?

Thanks,
Chris

Try using 20 rather than 0:0:20.0. IOW all times in total seconds.
