OMXPlayer PlaySpeed above 4 doesn't work

Fri Oct 27, 2017 7:28 pm

I am trying to use the OMXPlayer at a play speed above 4 and cannot get it to work.

By pressing the right arrow keys, you can increase the player's speed. It works fine until you get above 4 then the video shows the new speed setting (0.25, 8, 16, 32) but the player paused and plays at the normal speed or crashes it the player.

Internally, the omxplayer switches to a constant seek mode over an actual play mode to simulate the fast play.

I can't imagine that this is a bug but think it is likely an issue with the video I am testing but I can't seem to find a video that does work.

Does anyone know why this is?
