this will not help. -ss 00:10:00 is exactly the same as -ss 600. the
problem is that mplayer's seeking sucks, but you _cannot_ do correct
seeking in an mpeg file without reading the _entire_ thing from the
start up to the point you want to seek to... :( and of course that
sucks too, because seeking will take 5 minutes or something...
