[MPlayer-users] Seeking in MP4 files

So I rebuilt the mplayer with aa support now, and watched one of my 
movies through the ssh terminal (which is pretty beautifull, btw :):

The movie is defenitelly not seekable. Whenever I click on right arrow, 
it jumps to the beginning of the file.

Is there anything I can do about this?

It would be so nice to use mplayer for the thumbnail generation.

For example is there an option to tell the mplayer to skip the first n 
frames? I would be fine with that... If this option doesn't exist (I 
didn't find anything about this in the man pages), should it be added?
