UMS: No Fast-Forward

I've set up Universal Media Server this week, using the default configuration for wireless network. It works perfectly, all except that I can't fast-forward or jump to a specified time (This is possible when using the XMB, strangely enough, though).
When I'm at, let's say 5mn into the video, the time-bar just has marked : 5:00 ----- > 00:00, meaning Showtime can't detect the video's duration, and whenever I try to jump a minute or so forward, the video goes back to the beginning.
The UMS configuration is the default one (for wireless streaming), other than that, I don't know what information could be relevant.
It's the same behavior, whatever video I chose to play.
My question is : "Is there a way to fix this video duration problem? So i can navigate it properly using Showtime?".

Log could be handy. Can you attach it? https://showtimemediacenter.com/projects/showtime/wiki/Logging
Log 0 is enough.

I think the problem here is that UMS remuxes the stream on the fly from mkv to mpeg, see
00:02:04.862: probe [DEBUG]:http://192.168.1.10:5001/get/142/%5BCoalgirls%5D_Hyouka_01_%281280x720_Blu-Ray_FLAC%29_%5BE10E8818%5D.mkv: Probed as mpeg
If you play the stream from local PS3 HD or anything else i bet it works ok.
I think UMS remuxes when it detects an MAC address from PS3. It would be best if the authors of UMS could avoid remuxing the stream if it detect Showtime as user agent in HTTP requests.
Sorry, but I don't have time to install UMS and try to figure out a way to emulate the PS3 mpeg demuxer with all its quirks because to me that's just adding a workaround for a workaround in UMS.
Either contact the authors of UMS and ask them to avoid remuxing if HTTP user agent begins with Showtime, or just don't use UMS.
