Has skip back gotten shorter?
Posted 07 February 2013 - 12:43 PM
It used to be that skip back seemed to be around 15 seconds. Now it seems to be around 5, or less.
I have 30SKIP set.

I seem to remember it being referred to as 6 sec, but either way it wasn't ever 15 sec.
I always thought it was 8 seconds.

Ads are getting so bad that sometimes I quickly hit skip forward 8+ times and it still drops into an ad so I hit a few more (yes, that's right, 5 minutes of ads). When I overshoot it seems like I have to do a lot more skip backs than I used to.
So maybe it's not the skip back by itself. Maybe it has something to do with "dropping out of warp".
Not MRV but C31 client which may also explain some of it.
