An Ogg resource served via HTTP is seekable if the HTTP server supports byte range requests. This is most easily determined if the server sends Accept-Ranges. 

Some servers do not send that but still support byte ranges. Some of these (Amazon S3 for example) will respond with a 216 response code if you do a byte range request starting from 0 so they can be identified by making a range request on the first GET.
