In the menu bar select PlaybackJump to Specific Time. Alternatively, press Ctrl+T. Enter the hours, minutes, and seconds.


To seek from the command-line, use --start-time <seconds> to skip the beginning or --stop-time <seconds> to skip the end. As of VLC version 1.0.0 sub-second values are accepted. Example:

% vlc --start-time=83.4 --stop-time=300 BigBuckBunny.ogv

Plays an open-source movie starting at 1 minute 23.4 seconds and ending at 5 minutes.

Advanced users: playback control is documented in vlc --module=core --advanced
