GUI for ffplay with console output

I'm looking for a GUI front-end with command-line for playing media files with FFmpeg (like FFmpeg GUI converter: myFFmpeg)

do you know any?

FFmpeg is not a player but an encoder/decoder. ffplay, which is part of FFmpeg, is a player but without a GUI

why do you need a GUI for reporting bugs? Just run ffplay with your files in a console and it will give you its output. I don't see why a GUI is a requirement

Use the -ss option

Code:
ffplay -ss 00:15:00 -i input.mkv
the above example will start playing from 15 minutes into the video

ffplay can seek within the video by right clicking on the screen. It seeks "to percentage in file corresponding to fraction of width," ie left = start, right = end.

you can also use all arrow keys (up or down, left or right) to seek accordingly
