If a stream comes from the network (a streaming server) then the client 
can not take control of the playing rate, the server is in control. So 
you need some mechanism to talk to the server, so it can play the stream 
slower or faster.

A protocol is needed for this, e.g: RTSP.

Currently it is not possible to talk to the streamer server and to 
control the playing rate.

Someone is however working on getting fast forward and rewind possible 
on server and client, but that work is not finished yet.
