#1692 new defect

short jumps don't work

Using the smplayer gui, there I find the possibility to define short jumps via left/right, probably the same as
RIGHT seek 3
LEFT seek -3
in the ~/.mplayer/.input.conf file.
But short jumps often aren't done. smplayer developer sayd me, this is a problem of mplayer, which always jumps to the next key frame instead of really 2 seconds e.g.
Thats ennoying, especially, when there are key frames only every 10 seconds.
Please change this behavior!
Thank you.
(I suppose, vlc-player does smaller jumps.)

It is supposed to always jump _at least_ as far as specified, -demuxer lavf might help, otherwise we'd need a bit more info about which files exactly are affected.
However either way seeking will be to a keyframe, that part is extremely unlikely to change.

It is an avi-File, with mencoder MPEG-4 (DivX 4/5) encoded.

I would really like the behavior of jumps of exactly (or nearly exactly, e.g. ± 1 sec.) the specified time, not „at least“, because I don't like jumps of 10 sec if I need only 2 sec!

You ment, If i start mplayer with option

-demuxer lavf

(or give this to mplayer via SMplayer)
it could work?

However either way seeking will be to a keyframe, that part is extremely
unlikely to change.

I don't understand that so much, but I think (not really sure), vlc-player does smaller jumps (with the same file!)

For creating subtitles it just would be good to be able to do such short jumps.
(And it would be very helpful to have a just shortcut for rereading a (srt) subtitle-file (which one changed)).

did you try 1 / -1 ?

sometimes 1 will be 3 seconds
and 3 will be 10 seconds :)
