I need such function. I would like to see the quality of a video clip before
i download it. And the begginig usually is black. Seeking is a good thing.

There is a project called curl (and libcurl) , it support ftp,http+ssl,
resuming (seeking)
and many options. Maybe we should support it. I belive that xine can use it.
Anyway it is good to have native support too.
