Req Frame Advance and Slow Motion
#61
I used to have a Popcorn Hour A-110 media tank (https://www.expertreviews.co.uk/tvs-ente...ank-review). This was an early out-of-the-box media player that used several open source players glued together with many bits of scripting. It had many limitations (e.g. it used different players for different media file types) but it had one nice feature: while paused it could advance your video frame by frame. I used it a lot to watch explosions and work out how the special effects guys had done what they did.

I really miss this in Kodi, and I'd love to see it added as a feature!

If so..which ones?

Thanks in advance...
 I added it to Confluence and fTV awhile ago. 
Is it possible to add to Estuary?

I've come across this post while searching for how to watch some of the sport that I have recorded off the TV in slow-motion, and seem to be within touching distance of a solution, but not quite there, so if anyone can help me finish off the setup, it would be much appreciated.

I'm running Kodi 17.6 on Ubuntu 18.04 on a dedicated box.

So I've tried to add a single frame advance to my MCE remote 'next chapter' button and also to 'Alt-a' on the keyboard, with the following keyboard.xml file :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<keymap>
  <FullscreenVideo>
    <remote>
      <skipplus>PlayerControl(frameadvance(1))</skipplus>
    </remote>
    <keyboard>
      <a mod="alt">PlayerControl(frameadvance(1))</a>
    </keyboard>
  </FullscreenVideo>
</keymap>

And this seems to have worked, as I get the following entries in the log (with debug logging enabled) when I pause a video and then press the relevant buttons :
22:55:34.266 T:139761216188352   DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 68975:000000037ff07be5 00 KEY_NEXT mceusb (KEY_NEXT)

22:55:37.633 T:139761216188352   DEBUG: OnKey: alt-a (0x4f041) pressed, action is PlayerControl(frameadvance(1))

HOWEVER Kodi just doesn't seem to do anything with the order it's being given.

For other keypresses, there appears to be feedback from the executed command in the log file, but no such info here, so it appears that Kodi is just not executing the command - do I need to enable something somewhere, or compile something in to get FrameAdvance functionality?

Thanks in advance for any help

Upgrade as it's a v18 feature.
