Description (last modified by reimar)


Is it possible to add precise seek in mplayer, the same way mencoder is doing with −hr−edl−seek

The way −hr−edl−seek works is by just discarding samples. This can only work for seeking forward, thus it is rather unsuitable for MPlayer.
It certainly would be possible to use it only when forward seeking, and it would be possible to improve seeking precision (at the expense of making it vastly slower), but it is not simple to do and thus would need someone with the time and interest to do it.

without this feature is mplayer unussable for replay videos e.g from security camera(here is optimal seek 1s).
set to 10s --> great scattering:
00:07:22 seek to 00:07:58, 00:08:01 seek to 00:08:41 etc.
