I don't think you can while watching, but you can use -ss to seek to any point in the movie. e.g. mplayer file.avi -ss 23:22 would be 23 minutes and 22 seconds in.

Not what you're after I know....

Hi,

The only way to jump (forward/backward) during play is to use these:
Code:
<- and ->	Seek backward/forward 10 seconds.
up and down	Seek forward/backward 1 minute.
pgup and pgdown	Seek forward/backward 10 minutes.
While starting mplayer you can use -ss (and possibly -endpos).

Hope this helps.
