For the button script: the buttons worked well but when playing videos they are hidden no matter where I move them. It doesn't matter whether I'm in Fullscreen or simply maximized, there is no way to move the buttons beside the player module, or up to the menu bar (which are the only two "modules" shown while videos are playing). I tried skinned and unskinned modes too.

Fortunately, I have the mouse tilt button set to the shortcut key mentioned above, so this is a workaround for now.

I am thinking of using MM for more serious video watching because the sound is so much better than VLC. These buttons would be important in that case.

My current favorite software: MediaMonkey Gold!

Have you tried Arrow keys in Full screen?

Store this in a file 'fastforward.vbs' in /Scripts, not in /Scripts/Auto

Code: Select all

Sub Forward
  Dim pltime
  'ffwd  time in seconds
  pltime = 20

  if (SDB.Player.isPlaying) And (Not SDB.Player.isStartingPlayback) Then
	If Not (SDB.Player.PlaybackTime+(pltime*1000) > SDB.Player.CurrentSongLength) Then
	  SDB.Player.PlaybackTime = SDB.Player.PlaybackTime+(pltime*1000)
	end If
  End If
End Sub

Sub Rewind
  Dim pltime
  'rewind time in seconds
  pltime = 10

  If (SDB.Player.isPlaying) And (Not SDB.Player.isStartingPlayback) Then
	If Not (SDB.Player.PlaybackTime-(pltime*1000) < 0) Then
	  SDB.Player.PlaybackTime = SDB.Player.PlaybackTime-(pltime*1000)
	end if
  End if
End sub
Then add 2 shortcuts by adding the following code at the end of /Scripts/Scripts.ini:

Code: Select all

DisplayName=Fast Forward 20
Description=Fast Forwards 20 seconds

DisplayName=Fast Rewind 10
Description=Fast Rewinds 10 seconds
Now you can fast forward 20 seconds with . and rewind 10 seconds with ,
Change the Shortcut= to your own preferences. See ... _scripting for more info on the Shortcut=

Thank you all for the original script!

I If you work with the two shortcuts: the two buttons "." and "," cannot be used for tag editing.
