Toggle for Leia 18.5 standard skin Estuary - "no OSD in Video Playback when paused"
#1
Hello,
we often look Films with foreign audio tracks and foreign subtitles. In order to learn the language, we pause the playback often, in order to read the subtitles, look up a word and so on.
But that does not work very good, because the OSD lays over the subtitles. I didn't find an option to alter that behaviour in Estuary.

It is there in Estuary MOD, i tried that. But I would prefer using Estuary, It's "lighter".

Is this already a feature request? do I have to do addtional steps to make one?

Thank you,
Stefan

I use a keyboard for my remote control on Windows 10

I added the following to my keyboard.xml within the <global> <keyboard> section
<a mod="alt">xbmc.playercontrol(frameadvance(1))</a>

This is frame advance. When you pause, press ctrl-a the osd will disappear, and the movie will advance one frame. In most cases the frame advance won't be a problem unless you happened to pause on the last frame before the subtitles disappear.

Thank you. Our Situation is as follows - 4k tv, and a rpi4 with kodi. we use the tv remote via hdmi-cec for kodi. So it would be great if there was that option that we could simply switch with the tv remote.
in the meantime, I will try to switch the skin to Estuary MOD, although that is not my preferred skin.

this could be a simple fix
DialogSeekBar.xml

<control type="group">
            <visible>!Player.HasGame</visible>
            <bottom>0</bottom>
            <height>190</height>
            <control type="image">
                <left>-40</left>
                <width>120%</width>
                <height>200</height>
                <texture flipy="true">frame/osdfade.png</texture>
            </control>

changing <bottom>0</bottom>

this is set to 200

Thank you! I'll try the different variants.
I also found this link, which is very useful for beginner, because I didn't know how to alter the read-only files in libreelec.

Best Regards,
