I use the
3.0.10 latest VLC Media player. I am not able to skip forward or backward using the shortcut keys(Alt+Right or Alt+Left). If I try the shortcut keys, this make the video to start from the beginning again.
- In VLC, open Tools | Prefernces.
- Click Show Settings | All.
- In the Advanced Preferences settings,select Interface | Hotkey settings.
- Scroll to Short backwards jump and Short forward jump, check the settings and test them.
- If for some reason you can't make them work with the defaults, AltLeft and AltRight, try using a different key combination.
