    I use mplayer on Linux to play DivX's (yes, I'm a dirty rotten pirate, but let me tell you a studio isn't going to get my money if it pisses around releasing the Video 4 months before the DVD (Bridget Jones' Diary) or if they pull a DVD off the market for 9 months (Usual Suspects), so there!).

    mplayer has the "skip 10 seconds forward/backward" option, just using the left/right cursor keys. And space-bar is pause. This makes it ideal for watching if you've got a large enough monitor to plug it into, and if you've got a remote control keyboard (which I don't but I'm considering), would be bliss.
