If a user scrubs the timeline past a mid roll advert, open-video-ads should play the last mid-roll advert that was skipped.

Same comment here. Trying to understand how much effort this would be. I won't mind implementing this myself.

Yeh, this is tricky.
The ad streamer actually schedules the ad in advance and places it 'instream" using the Flowplayer API based on the calculated timings. If someone fast forwards, they in effect make the player miss the timing event to trigger the start of the ad.
What I'd have to do is "force" insertion of ads at the new timepoint after checking if any have been missed.
It's possible. Not sure how stable it would be... I'll need to look more into it... I'll put on my TO DO list...

Hmm...interesting. Ok. Same comment here. I'm happy to look into it from next week once I get a few cycles. But maybe you'll get to it before I can. :)
