Hi *

I just wanted to know if it is possible to do a kind of remote control of
mplayer from another application with inter process communication. I.e. I
want to write a simplified UI for that really nice mplayer, but don't want
to change mplayer itself.

Just basic functions like fast forward and backward (like right or left
cursor) and stop (ESC key). How could this be done?

And another thing: Is it possible to tell the mplayer to jump to a certain
position in a playing movie by seconds? At the moment i just can find an
option for a byte value (-sb), which actually doesn't make much sense to me
