yes that is what I used for the control. there is a flag which says normal
or not in nuppelvideoplay::play(). normal means turn audio on with the
appropriate speed factor.

shouldnt this be ok if you just decode I frames and ignore the P and B ones?
that should reduce the processing by quite a bit. Ill have a look if it
hasnt been done before. but surely it has???
I like the 30sec jump for ad skipping. much faster than scanning. about
3secs to skip an add. auto detect isnt that relable for me.

I also notice that the quality of decode is not as good as on my windows
machine. dark backgrounds get a lot of dark green amongst the nearly black
background. use brightness control to enhance this effect. I think this must
be a rounding error in the video decode routines.
