Judging by the screenshots of the Totem movie player,
they seem to have slavishly copied all the stupid user
interface problems from all other badly designed movie
players out there:
The "FF", "RW" buttons make sense on a physical
device, where it costs a certain amount of money
to include each individual microswitch. But in
software, buttons don't cost anything at all!
Why can't I have an entry box so that I can, for
example, go back exactly 5 minutes in a film (eg.
when I've just resumed watching a film from the
night before)? Or go to an exact minute:second
point? Or how about being able to go back to the
last scene change (pretty simple to determine
with MPEG encoding)?
