I think a good first step might be to implement this one alone - it will
not provide the total time of the whole movie (do we need it ?), but the
time counter will show real time since the beginning of the movie.
Yes it will break if there are gaps in the timeline, but usually TSs
recorded from TV stations don't have this problem (except PTS wraparounds
which can be handled). This approach could also work with network-served 
streams (FTP, HTTP etc.) without the need for extensive seeking.

The position slider could in this case rely solely on movie length in bytes. 

Perhaps this could be also implemented for PS etc. - see ticket #591.

	With kind regards,
