Shortcut keys for subtitles/audio offset?
#1
Question 
Hello.

Is it possible to assign quick keyboard shortcuts to subtitle and audio offset, so I directly gets the slide bar on top of screen while playing?

Sometimes some subtitles are slighlty oos and then they are in sync, so I need to adjust the offset a few time, so it would be great if it was possible.

Thx

Have a look at http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Action_IDs. The actions you want are:

subtitledelay Show subtitle delay slider
subtitledelayminus Decrease subtitle delay
subtitledelayplus Increase subtitle delay
audiodelay Show audio delay slider
audiodelayminus Decrease AV sync delay
audiodelayplus Increase AV sync delay

You need to edit your keyboard.xml to add the key mappings. The easy way to do this is to install my MCERemote addon from http://xbmcmce.sourceforge.net/ as it has an option to create and edit a template keyboard.xml. If you prefer to create the file manually press Windows-R and in the Run dialog type:

notepad %appdata%\xbmc\userdata\keymaps\keyboard.xml

If you're prompted to create a new file answer "Yes".

You need to choose what keys to map. Suppose you want to use ctrl-left and ctrl-right to adjust the subtitle delay and ctrl-shift-left and ctrl-shift-right for the audio delay. You need the keyboard.xml to look something like:

Code:
<keymap>
  <global>
    <keyboard>
      <left mod="ctrl">subtitledelayminus</left>
      <right mod="ctrl">subtitledelayplus</right>
      <left mod="ctrl,shift">audiodelayminus</left>
      <right mod="ctrl,shift">audiodelayplus</right>
    </keyboard>
  </global>
</keymap>
I've just tested this keyboard.xml on my system so I'm confident it works :-)

Hello,
I'm new at XBMC- start using it like two days ago.
I have a question about fixing subtitles offset.
But first- LOVE the app! It's amazing!

Ok- I'm using the iOS app- xbmcRemote- on my iphone and my iPad (also- great app)
Is there a shortcut the fix subtitles offset from this iPhone/iPad app?
Is there a way to make this shortcut in this iPhone/iPad app?
Or maybe there is a better app for iOS? (iPhone and iPad...)

Thank you !

not working for me... I'm using Linux and supposedly keyboard.xml is under /home/user/.kodi/userdata
first of all there was none but I created one and put that code in.... no use..... the left, right, up and down keys just behave as the did before...
up = skip 10 minutes forwards
down = skip 10 mintes backwards
left = skip 10 seconds backwards
right = skip 10 seconds forwards

so either this all doesn work or the file has to be somewhere else and/or has another name....

btw I'm running Krypton
