I have the same issue, if you open it up in Xine, you can skip ahead
throughout the entire movie.  one issue I am noticing though is that
each second that it says is passsed is really 1.5-2seconds in reality.
 So it shows a two hour movie only 1 hour 15 minutes or something,
that is the time that is shown in the credits but you can scroll all
the way through the movie.
