I understand, but there should be packages for those, too. If not,
here's a great opportunity to contribute. We try to solve our part of
the problem for our largest userbase, Gentoo/Debian have their own
solutions. I'm sure something similar is possible for SuSE, too.

The barebones application is in gst-plugins, "examples/seeking/seek 11
file:///path/to/file". If you're looking for something less prehistoric
to serve as example code, I usually recommend Aldegonde (see our apps
page), although it's purely example code and not meant to be an end user
app. All our efforts go into Totem.
