Window 7 Media Center Video Skipping Feature

October 28, 2009

There is a nice The Digital Lifestyle post that describes some very useful features for easily skipping ahead multiple commercials or to a place X minutes into any video file. It works with extenders as well:

Enter a number and press the skip forward button. This will then move the playback forward by that number multiplied by the skip amount (30 seconds). For example, enter 10 and press skip forward and it’ll move by 5 minutes (10×30 = 300 seconds = 5 minutes).


Just type in a number of minutes and press Play. Then, regardless of how far through the video you already are, the playback point will instantly go to that number of minutes from the start. So, enter 65 and press Play and you’ll instantly be a hour and five minutes from the start of the video.
