Fast Forward Button with .seekcur

Hello,

for a few Days i am trying to build a Fast Forward Button with the .seekcur command.
Neither Google or this Board seems to know my Problem till now ;)

So here it is:
if (datetime.now() - buttonPressedTime).total_seconds()>=2:
client = connectMPD()
client.seekcur(-5)
client.close()
time.sleep(1.5)
is working fine (Fast Backwards) but if i change client.seekcur(-5) against client.seekcur(+5) it jumps to Second 5 of the playing Track not as expected relative 5 seconds futher.

Am I'm doing something wrong?

Thanks for your Help

It's probably that the client library you use (you didn't say which one) interprets positive integers as absolute position inside the song. Read the library's documentation on how to specify positive relative offsets.
