Windows 7: WMP 12 with FLAC files

WMP 12 with FLAC files

Hi, iv noticed the seek bar doesnt seem to work when playing a FLAC file within WMP. It doesn't sync with the music and just stays in one position (on the left). Can some members of this forum please also check if they have this same behaviour in thier WMP12 with FLAC files, thanks! (Im running windows 7 btw).
