time bar in mplayer frontend

The thing I like about mplayer is navigation in video at steps of 10s,1m or 10m.
There are so many GUI's available yet I have not seen any in which our cursor hovers over slide to see time at that position.
Like youtube's flash player allows you to go at any desired time in video.
I think if the skin knows the length of video then it can divide length of slide timewise .

Do you know any frontend which provides this feature ?
