I use actually on Windows XP SP3, the SMPlayer version who can be found in the last Mulder's MPlayer package (0.68 SVN r3213), but I have also tried with the stable 0.68 available here, and I have so a curious bug with the Seekbar.
The problem concerns all WMV videos who have a size > 600/700M and beyond. I am sure over this numbers, as all videos I have under 500M are not concerned (well, in a small way).
So, if I want to go to a position of the big WMV video, whatever the position, SMPlayer don't understand well where I want to go.
When I click to the middle of the seekbar, SMPlayer understand the end of the file, so of course, playing is stopped at I reached the end.
Same thing if I want to seek near the beginning of the video, he understand the middle, or sometimes 25%, it seems random.
The problem don't' seems to exist with all others video formats, but I only have one MKV of 450Mb at maximum to test...
Nevertheless, whatever the video size, I can see that the seekbar don't go exactly at the mouse position. I saw few millimeters of gap generally with a MKV file of 450M, but it is more visible with WMV files of 400/500M, as I can see a centimeter of gap each time I click somewhere on the Seekbar. This don't make the Seekbar useless and don't stop the video, so I can seek as I want. Until I want see a video beyond 600/700M...
This problem don't exist with MPUI, included in Mulder's Package.
If you need a video to make some tests, check this one. It is a legit video of 723M done about a video game, and I tested the bug with success with this one :
