I spent a good day researching XBMC forums for how to do this, but got nowhere so thought maybe you awesome people could help.
Using fast forward and rewind is fairly clumsy so I decided I would use step forward and step back instead, but to my amazement the people who made XBMC made the jump default to 30 seconds! My missus says, "I missed that, go back" and I use the step backward button/voice command and it bounces me 30 seconds previous when I only needed about 5 seconds.
My research led me to create an advanced.xml file in my "User data" folder and I tried every instruction on every forum and it just does nothing as if I'd never created the file. After a while I began to consider whether it was the skin I was using as some forums suggested altering another XML file called videoOSDsettings.xml under C:\Program Files (x86)\XBMC\addons\skin.confluence\720p
There is no similar folder for the 'Night' skin, and perhaps that is totally irrelevant considering I know nothing about coding and can only follow explicit instructions and make educated guesses and perhaps I am miss-understanding what the skin.confluence folder contains.
And so I fall to you. Is there anything you guys can suggest, i.e. do you know in what way I am being an idiot, more to the point is there a workaround in Voxcommando to shorten the jump to just 5 seconds.
Below is the most recent attempt at the advancedsettings.xml file...
<timeseekforward>5</timeseekforward> <!-- Time to seek forward in sec - short seek. Defaults to 30. -->
<timeseekbackward>-5</timeseekbackward> <!-- Time to seek backward in sec - short seek. Defaults to -30. -->
<timeseekforwardbig>600</timeseekforwardbig> <!-- Time seek forward in sec- long seek. Def 600 (10 min). -->
<timeseekbackwardbig>-600</timeseekbackwardbig> <!-- Time seek back in sec - long seek. Def to -600 (10 min). -->
Loving your work as always
