Yes it is. The problem is the UI more than anything. Since the
freerunner is kinda slow and has no accelerated graphics, there is
input lag - especially when the CPU is pegged from the decoding. There
was a seek in the original pythm and I removed it because of that
reasons. I will play around with it.

I do not know GTK very well, so if anyone has any suggestions (code)
on how to draw better (i.e., bigger) sliders that would be helpful.
Knowing such things would help me improve the volume control as well.
