Great, works very smooth for me, the picture does update while sliding the
seek slider.

Though I still see a reason for keeping the timer stuff in an (the Qt)
- when seeking movies, the sound almost does not get played because it makes
a new seek _right after_ finishing the previous one (good for picture, but
sound needs time to exist);
- when seeking music you get a cloud of sound, nice sound effect, sounds
almost like granular synthesis, but the song, and thus the position in it is
not comprehensible.

-> I would keep the timer in Qt but make it optional via configuration like
# "timed" seeking yes/no
# (if yes) seek interval in ms (like up to 1000ms - as the top extreme
