Depends on the media.
For mpeg4 avi, the seeking info is at the end of the file, so you can seek into an incomplete file if you give the -forceidx parameter
On live media, however, the seeking info may not be available at all. If mplayer cannot seek on some particular page, the media probably has not seeking capabilities
