Thank you. I had to go with repeat = 3 in my case and now the play/pause
works. There is still a glitch, but I'll try to play with various values
The glitch is that it does not pause instantly. I can see that it does
pause/play/pause (shows on OSD) and it takes (just a guess) 300ms (3x
100ms) ...it's quick but I can see/feel the delay.
When I hit pause on keyboard it's instantaneous. BTW: this is all
mplayer I'm taking about.
Repeat = 4 did not work at all.
Again thanks, this is now usable condition ;)
