    Hi,

    just a fussy question:
    why is there a small "fast-forwarding" of some tenths of a second when pausing the playback?
    It doesn't stop at the point I want it to stop.

    This is annoying when I try to stop exactly at a special frame/scene.

    Any idea to solve this?

    Thanks!

    MP1.3, LAV filters, TV and video playback.

    I forgot to mention that when you resume the playback, it starts at the point I pressed the button.
    It's sometimes funny to see, when you pause it frequently, how the movings begin to stutter back and forth ;)

    I think this has always been a "feature" :) of MP. But no one is as fussy as me... ;)

    Using MP 1.4 PR with LAV here. I don't see what you're seeing.

    What doesn't mean the effect is still there :)

    Try switching to a news TV station with a marquee at the bottom. Follow the text and pause the playback.
    You will see a (minimal) jump forward of the text. When you resume playback it will jump backwards.
    This is really minimal but you see it better in scenes with fast movements.

    Looks like there is a small buffer at the end of the playback even when MP says you are at the end. When you pause the playback it'll jump to the real end of the buffer. And on resume it'll start from where you pushed the pause button.
