Default Re: OSD outline, and steady jump speed

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!!)
