#880 new enhancement

Please give users the possibility of viewing the time in frames

Reported by: inventatoru@… Owned by: ib
Priority: normal Component: GUI
Version: 1.0rc1 Severity: minor
Keywords: Cc: compn, inventatoru@…, ib

Currently, (g)mplayer (-gui) displays time as hours, minutes and seconds. For people who create and edit subtitles, like me, it is extremely useful to know the current position in the movie in frames.

My version of mplayer is 2:1.0~rc1-0ubuntu9.1.

A possible fix would be that, when the user clicks on the time label, the display would change to frames.

Please answer, even if you don't have a fix, I'll fix it personally if I really have to; just don't keep me waiting for nothing.

Thank you so much for being there for us!

  • Severity changed from normal to enhancement

mplayer does not currently have a way to keep track in frames (or even seek to frame). please add this to mplayer and send a patch! :)

when you add it, make sure to add it as a property so it can be used in the get/set/step format

also there are some programs for subtitling that use mplayer, maybe they are helpful ?
