    Hello.

    Kplayer can play rmvb, but cannot seek.

    Whenever I drag the process slider bar, it stops playing.

    Has anyone got the same problem?

      As far as I know, that's a limitation of the underlying mplayer engine. I think only Real's proprietary player will seek properly in streams. WMV streams don't work properly either, for the same reason. Been bothering me for years.

      The above is correct. It never hurts to submit a bug to MPlayer bugzilla, including a sample that illustrates the problem, whether a file or a URL.
