I'd like to write a front end (not for user interaction, but for control by 
another program) to mplayer.

I figure out that the easiest way to do this is through the text client 
protocol, but it seems to lack commands for fast forwarding, positioning at a 
specific location within the file, and the like. Is it that I've not looked 
well and such functionality exists..or do I have to interface my front end in 

Thanks in advance for any explanation ....
