With mplayer my lazy and unscientific way is to use the "o" (thats alpha
not numeric) on the keyboard to see how far thru the movie I am before
stopping it, then when I restart it using pgup/down and
up/down/left/right arrows to find the spot again.

Just describing it makes me realise there must be a better way!
