If by "scrolling" you mean "seeking", then I believe the issue is that the current Ubuntu One file server doesn't support HTTP Range requests, which is needed to seek when playing HTML5 video or audio.

Yes, I mean seeking. I checked out if server supports Content-Range. Started download a file with the wget and aborted it. Then continued downloading with -c -S keys, it continued to download and returned head Content-Range: bytes 1908203-23877827/23877828 So, Content-Range is supported. – rekcuFniarB Dec 26 '11 at 20:27
