I am using OSX 10.6 and just wondering if there is any media player that can skip forward/backward 5/10secs like what Winamp can do in Windows platform?

Currently I am using Quicktime player, and it can only fastforward 2x,4x,8x etc.

Get Movist and go to preferences, there you can define size of steps which will be skipped using ←/→, ⌥ + ←/→ and ⌘ + ←/→.

Thanks, I really like Movist! :) – portoalet Nov 8 '10 at 15:51

VLC media player can do that. Type Alt + right/left or Ctrl + right/left.

You can also re-bind it to non-stupid keys, such as plain unmodified arrows. – o0'. Nov 5 '10 at 13:08
If you have a trackpad, you can also use your fingers: 2 fingers left or right to skip backward/forward. – gulbrandr Nov 5 '10 at 13:11
