The current abstraction doesn’t support that – of course, you could always crack the vz.playr abstraction open and add it. I’ll add it to the list of "things we’d like" for sure. How about a message that’d let you use a number in the range 0. to 1. to play or scrub through the loaded movie. maybe? I’ll think about it.

If you take the version of the vz.playr patch (I’m assuming you’re using Max6, of course) and put it in the place where the current vz.playr abstraction lives (that would be in the (Max 6 folder) > patches > VIZZIE-PATCHES directory) as a replacement, the abstraction/module would then let you use the message "position X" in the left inlet to either start at the beginning of the movie (e.g. "position 0") or scrub through the movie, as shown here….
