Hi,

with kplayer 0.6.2 I am unable to use the left/right arrows for backward/forward seeking into a video. kplayer seems to grab these two keys for itself and it does not respect the shortcut settings for the arrows anymore. However if I set the shortcuts for backward/forward seeking to, say, B and F, then B and F work as expected.

Cheers

John

    Does this happen only when multimedia library has the focus?
    I made it this way because in the library the right and left
    arrow keys expand and collapse folders in a tree.

    Maybe it wasn't such a good idea, I'll think about reverting
    this for 0.6.3...

    No, it happens even when the multimedia library is closed.
    So it isn't a bug but a deliberate choice.......well, I
    don't know, it's kind of confusing since arrows are usually
    associated with seeking.....

    Well for me the arrow keys work except when the library is visible and has the input focus.

    So if you are sure they don't work at all for you, there may be something else going on.

    In that case you could do this:

    - get the KPlayer source
    - uncomment the lines that say
    #define DEBUG_KPLAYER_NOTIFY_KEY in kplayer.cpp
    and #define DEBUG_KPLAYER_KEY in x11.cpp
    - compile the modified code
    - run it from the console
    - reproduce the problem when the library is hidden
    - send me the output you get on the console.

    Thank you!
