PostPosted: Sat 29 Sep 2012, 03:09    Post subject:  Making configuration adjustment in Gnome-Mplayer  

The default "seek forwards/backwards" times in Mplayer are 10 seconds. I'd like to change these to 5 seconds. If I go to the .mplayer folder there is only one file, "config", which at the moment just contains the text "# Write your default config options here!".

I've tried adding the following lines to change the above-mentioned settings:

RIGHT seek +5
LEFT seek -5

(also tried it with putting [gnome-mplayer] before this)

...but when I do this and open a file it won't play and just says "stopped".

Does anyone know how I can make this setting adjustment and get it to work?!

Thanks

Thanks, but the problem I have isn't that the "seek" times I enter are reproduced inaccurately, rather that when I enter any values at all into the config file, gnome-mplayer will no longer play anything, just go straight to "stopped".

If I type "mplayer -input keylist" into a console, I get the message:

Option RIGHT needs a parameter at line 3
Option LEFT needs a parameter at line 4

...which seems to indicate some kind of syntax error, but I don't know why as I've entered the commands correctly as far as I can see. Unfortunately Googling that error message doesn't bring up anything that is of any help to me.

Please post your /root/.mplayer/input.conf contents

Here's what I have:

# Write your default config options here!

RIGHT seek +5
LEFT seek -5

(although the file is just called "config", if I create another one called "input.conf" and delete this one it has no effect).

Is the player starting and playing and just not skipping the +5 ?

If so, try reducing the times to +1 or +2.

The player's starting but it won't play any files when I make the above changes to the config file, it just jumps straight to "stopped". The error message from the console tells me there's a missing parameter, but I have no idea what this is.
