Description

Whenever I press on the left cross (PS3), the rewind gap is too high (like 15 seconds). Would it be possible to configure the value, say 5 seconds?

Hi Andreas, can you look into that? It'd be a welcome addition. Thanks

I've thought a bit about this. Another option rather than having a setting is that the skip-time increases as keyrepeat continues.

So if you press just once maybe it will skip 3 seconds and if you hold the key it will accelerate all way up to maybe 1 minute per skip.

This mimics the "seek faster as you press harder" L2/R2 behaviour.

I think that's a better dynamic behavior indeed. How to you want to indicate the skip-time span on the screen? By indicating the span by itself or with a time bar?

#4 Updated by Ema Nymton about 7 years ago

Hi Andreas, do you plan to implement what you suggested?

#5 Updated by Ema Nymton over 6 years ago

Hi Andreas I really want that for 4.8 :) Sometimes when I miss one or two words in a conversation it's a bit frustrating to have to rewatch 10 or 15 seconds when 3 seconds would have been just fine :)
Thanks

Awesome! I set the back duration to 3 s and it works like a charm. Thanks!
