[FFmpeg-user] Getting a point in time as known by ffmpeg?

When I watch a video (in xine or gxine for example)I see a
value displayed which is how long the video has been
playing.  If I find a scene where I want to process the
video starting at 00:00:40.000 as displayed in xine, in
ffmpeg I have to experiment to find that same spot. It's not
at 00:00:40.000, but instead 00:00:63.000.  

It's like the notion of time in ffmpeg is different than
what is displayed by the players.  Is this user error, 
should I be viewing them in something else, or is there a
way to use ffplay to see display the time?
