After moving my thread, you could have at least answered my question.

As I understand it, you can do this with XMBC on the XBOX but my question was for the Windows or Linux port.

Would be a nice feature actually. Especially for watching details that could be hard to see in normal speed etc. The original XBOX Dashboard movie player (from Microsoft) handles slow motion, single frame stepping and zooming really nice actually. It is possible to some degree in XBMC for Xbox (as described earlier in this thread). But it is not totally hazzle free and it often goes out of sync with sound and time line.

we can go back & forward @ 2x 4x 8x 16x & 32
it would be great to do the same @ 1/2 1/4 1/8

pike was correct back in 2k4, but now mplayer can do this
and it is a common feature in any decent video player

plz reconsider

eight xbmc devices mostly openElec
atom/ion | iphone4 | hpTouchPad | raspberryPI ...

+1 Nod

(bump in hope someone who can code or has some free time will have some interest in this)

Oh and also : in most players I've seen the frame by frame function is achieved by pressing pause again, it seems to make more sense than pressing right but maybe that's just me.

+1 I'd love to see this happening. I'm no coder, unfortunately. Blush

IIRC the support for this was only in good ol' mplayer, which we stopped using when we ported to Linux and Beyond

I'm not sure it's possible to add this support to the "in house" dvdplayer core which is what XBMC uses these days

I would really like this frame by frame slow motion implemented in XBMC.
It is so cool. Nod

this feature would help take good screen shots and upload them to tmdb thus help the community as well. :-)

And it has many other benefits as well.
Slow motion and frame-by-frame stepping is implemented in almost all HTPC streamers and MC software except for XBMC afaik, is it difficult to implement? (wish I was a programmer...)

Having just switched from two streamers (PCH and Dune) to XBMC I was astonished to find that such an elementary feature found everywhere else has not been implemented, especially since xbmc is so superior is most other respects.
