Is there a feature or add-on in XBMC so that I can scan/fast-forward through a movie using thumbnails at ~1 minute intervals, like the PS3 has?

I use OpenELEC which bundles XBMC, and I have not found a way to change the preview thumbnails... :/ – SnakeDoc Apr 4 '13 at 7:08

I do not know of a way to scan through like that. If you want to jump through at one minute intervals, though, you would change your advancedsettings.xml file.

Inside the tags (adjust the values accordingly):

<usetimeseeking>true</usetimeseeking>  <!-- Whether to use time based or percentage based seeking. -->
<timeseekforward>30</timeseekforward>  <!-- Time to seek forward in seconds when doing a short seek.  Defaults to 30. -->
<timeseekbackward>-10</timeseekbackward>  <!-- Time to seek backward in seconds when doing a short seek.  Defaults to -30. -->
<timeseekforwardbig>300</timeseekforwardbig>  <!-- Time to seek forward in seconds when doing a long seek.  Defaults to 600 (10 minutes). -->
<timeseekbackwardbig>-300</timeseekbackwardbig>  <!-- Time to seek backward in seconds when doing a long seek.  Defaults to -600 (10 minutes). -->

That's a shame. Even YouTube has thumbnail previews now. – mpen Jul 22 '13 at 18:53
