    Hi, I just switched from MP1 to 2.2. I wish to be able to FF/FR at speeds of 2,4,8,16,32x like in MP1 and not only 2 and 4x. Please add also a time slider that indicates the progress and so...
    Thanks!
    Thomas.

    @morpheus_xx , is there any technical limitation that prevents the player to advance at 8,16 and 32x ?

    @morpheus_xx , any comment? I've wondered myself in the past why we can't avance faster than 4x.

    In MP1 I think it basically does 'real' (i.e. running the graph faster) fast-forward to x4, then supports faster speeds by doing repeated, short, forward skip-steps to mimic fast-forward. I think it always does reverse play (rewind) by using skip-steps.

    The reason is that some filters don't behave nicely at high graph speeds, so the graph hangs/is slow to respond etc. Also running at e.g. x32 means you have to read and decode the stream x32 faster than normal...

    See MP1 player code at: MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1
