I'm referring to he version that's downloadable - in binary form -
from <http://www.videolan.org/vlc. Currently, that's version 0.9.6.
With this version, at least, the seek and fast-forward GUI has no
effect on a RTSP/RTP stream that supports these operations.
However, it's good to hear that Glen and others have been working on
adding this. If you haven't already done so, I recommend testing
this against a "live555 Media Server"
<http://www.live555.com/mediaServer/> streaming a MPEG Transport
Stream file that has been indexed for 'triick play' support - see
Live Networks, Inc.
