I'm using MPlayer 1.0pre6-3.2.3 for Windows. I tried the -forceidx 
switch but this still gives the "Cannot seek in raw AVI streams" output.
I remember while encoding movies in Linux, Mencoder outputs something 
like "creating new odlm index at 1024".
I'm going to encode Hero again and see if Mencoder gives similar output, 
I'll let you know if it does.
