> How long does an average commercial skip take?

I didn't check my watch but I think they were just 3-4 seconds at
the most on my Athlon 700 with video stored over NFS which slows
seeking I would assume.  You would think it would be faster, but I
believe it's being slowed down by the requirement to turn on exactseeks
before seeking since the code needs to use exact frames so it can know
where it is in the stream and where to look for commercials.

Give it a shot on your system, if you don't like it back the patch out.
Even with the patch, unless you hit 'Z' or turn on auto-skip, then nothing
new gets executed.
