Bug Description

Binary package hint: mplayer

Currently the function of pressing . (dot) does a step forward but there is no way of stepping backwards. E.g. pressing , (comma), should result in a step backwards.

Implementing this would complete the stepping functionality.

In 2.0-728-g2c378c7-4build1 only '.' works to go one frame forwards. ',' does not go one frame backwards.

That wasn't the question.

Do the arrows work for you to step forward and backward?

OK, now I understand you after reading the man page.

quote from man page: " . Step forward. Pressing once will pause movie, every consecutive press will play one frame and then go into pause mode again."

This is outside the scope of what Ubuntu as a project does. You will need to convince upstream to implement this functionality. Ubuntu will not prepare the code or carry a delta for this purpose.
