Try compiling MPlayer from git (use git://repo.or.cz/mplayer-build.git).
That should show an image immediately after every seek. Unlike the above
screenshot the images should be accurate; this makes generating them
somewhat slower, but unless your system is really slow I think it should
be an improvement.
