    Hey,

    unfortunately it's not possible to create own, second based, skip steps.

    I recognised, that al lot of TV series have a +/- 1:30 intro.
    So the possibility of a 1:30 skip step would be great!

    Thanks and regards,
    Felix

    Some reason, just landed on this oldish post:)

    Yes - you can enter value upto 59 sec skip BEFORE the 60 second value in "Define skip steps manually" but after the 60, enter any viable value [ a whole number and in correct ascending sequence - ie 30,60,90,180.....] and pop up error above the listing is "Enter whole minutes only!".

    I tried replacing 60 second entry with 90 [in case it as 1st full minute based selection] but no joy - so Crix is correct, it's not an option [tested in 1.16 Final], values 1-60 are valid then N*60 onlyo_O

    Wiki page does not state this limitation.:(

    And in the interests of just playing about - adding 90 the the skip steps in MediaPortal.xml results in same warning [although the value is not over written] and then ignored as step in playing video ;)

    So, unless I'm missing something totally obvious.:whistle:

    Cheers - JCMP

    Just the reason why I ask: Most series intros are 1:30 ;)

    Hi,

    You can use up/down for immediate skipping.

    Very true - setting constant & 90 gives you the 90 second skip - not as 'totally neat' manual skip steps being truly 'to the second' I would say, but as a fixed action [your use case Crix is start of many TV series {Big Bang Theory is about 20 so not all however:( so a frequent need] for a specific condition, it may really be a better solution:D - so much so, I'm going to config my prod MePo to do just that(y)

    Cheers - JCMP
