Default OSD outline, and steady jump speed

Maybe I'm blind and it's already there somewhere but it'd be nice if the OSD had an outline, I use white text for the volume, and position through the movie because normally I watch dark scenes, however if it's a white scene the OSD is invisible... just like the default mouse cursor is white with a black border so it can be seen on anything, so should be the OSD!

On a separate note the fast forward in bsplayer seems to be variable speed, the longer you hold it the further it skips, normally this is fine but it'd be nice to hold shift and arrow back/forward to jump at a steady rate

-Thanks

It appears that you've redefined the default settings, but I don't know which as you also mention both "fast forward" and "jump" which are two different features.
(Default function for Shift+arrow key is "Subtitles time correction".)
With respect to playback there are (not mentioning Next/Previous Chapter jumps) several functions, which may perhaps be confusing and consequently mixed up.
(Note I can - of course - only give default keys.)
  • [,] Jump backward
  • [.] Jump forward
    (Default "Seconds to jump" is 10, but can be customized/redefined under "General settings")
  • [arrow left] Seek backward
  • [arrow right] Seek forward
  • [Ctrl/F5] Fast forward *)
  • [Ctrl/F6] Fast rewind *)
  • [F5] Increase playback rate by 1%
  • [F6] Decrease playback rate by 1%
  • [Shift/F5] Increase playback rate by 10%
  • [Shift/F6] Decrease playback rate by 10%
It is obvious that when you keep key(s) depressed for a longer while, the keycommand(s) will (after a certain delay as defined in Windows) autorepeat. E.g. if you continue depressing "Increase playbackrate by 1%"-key(s), the speed will steadily "grow" (untill your CPU cannot longer cope), but you have no real control. To come back to the topic raised by you: for "Fast forward" resp. "Fast rewind" you should only apply single key-depresses (and you need not hold the key(s) depressed!). Also for "Jump forward" and "Jump backward" you should use single key-depresses, otherwise the keyboard's auto-repeat function will step in.
Further, if - while playing a movie - you rightclick, select "Playback" and then "Playback rate" there is (i.a.) also an option to select "2x". With this option you keep sound. (There is a funny Winamp plug in which you could use with this; check out this post (click here).

*): There are also skins which provide in fast forward/backward buttons. E.g. try this one (but there are plenty others in BSPlayer's skins-division!!)

Default

Ok I ment jump not fast forward, and shift was an example, didn't know it defaulted to subtitle time correction as I havn't used it. Seems I'm an idiot and thought the arrows defaulted to the jump when they are seek, does simmilar enough things I didn't notice.

However this does bring up another idea can you implement a jump to next scene feature? (or am I still an idiot and it's already in there somewhere) I'm not sure how it does it but I have seen it done, probably by if more than x pixels change it's a new scene but I don't know how these things work.

Oh and the more important part of my sugestion was about the outline on the osd. Is this being worked on? Is there a reason why it's a bad idea?
