I recently realized that I have bad seeking problems on my windows
machine with VLC so that it's difficult to skip the commercials. It can
play the file at normal speed perfectly. I switched over to Media
Player Classic and it seeks perfectly, as if they were local files.
VLC is the only thing I have that can decode a 640x480 mpeg4 stream
though. Media player classic fails to render it for some reason but can
do a 480x480 stream no problem. Until I get a fix for the seek problem
in VLC I'm using media player classic.
