The road till 4.3 should be still long enough.. we could just try including it 
"as it is", have a phonon version for the release shouldn't be impossible

Great! The question is: how?
I don't know phonon API's at all, so i'm the wrong guy at proposing patches.
I had a quick review anyway... the player can seek backward and forward, so 
it's not a problem.. and about the "snapshotting".. what if we just have a 
"SnapshotVideoOutput" extending "AbstractVideoOutput"? we could just replace 
the default one in the player, and let the video output make the snapshots.
How does it sound?
