MediaPortal with the WMC skin is a fine replacement for MS WMC except that we do miss not being able to play videos speeded up (not fast forward - speeded up so you can still hear the sound) or in slow motion.
Any chance of getting these in a future release?

    I think it depends on the file you want to play. I can fast-forward most files. For some it does not work, because they were encoded differently. With our player it can not be changed.
    Slow motion is generally not possible and probability somebody will add it is quite low, because development resources are very limited and not many people would use this feature. Unfortunately we have to focus or real bugs and key features.

    Yes, we can fast forward, but it's too fast to be able to hear the audio. In MS WMC you could fast forward (not very fast, but fast enough to be worth while) which we found ideal for example the local TV News.

    I've no idea if it's possible to borrow code from VLC but it has a Playback Speed feature - you can play at (eg) 110% of normal speed or 90% and I think this would be really useful in MediaPortal.

    Skip forward/backword works well for me in 2.3 with the WMC skin using the mouse. I can also FF at X2. All I'm missing is the ability to speed up replay with sound!

    The slider in TV is not clickable by mouse yet, so at the moment timeshift works only with keyboard/remote. I think it can be implemented, but due to limited resources it won't have higher priority at the moment. You could add it as feature request in the corresponding section and if you're lucky a dev picks it up as it seems not too...
