Here is the manual, just in case that
many of you want to check by yourself
all the capabilities of mplayer :D

Interesting enough, the keyboard works inside the
floating mplayer video window. So, if needed, a user
could be instructed to use these keys to control the
video.

Looks like it is possible to control mplayer (and vlc)
using sockets:

How many of you have used sockets to control other applications
inside LiveCode?

shell("mplayer -ontop -noborder -geometry 50%:50% -quiet -ss 12 -xy 0.5
TFF.mp4")
