    If you absolutely must have it, I would suggest it work like this:

    1) Press Play button for 3 seconds.
    2) Huge slider pops up in the center of the screen (like the volume OSD window does) and user can click slider knob etc.
    3) Pressing outside of the window will eliminate the slider popup.
    4) Timeout of 4 seconds will also eliminate the slider popup.

    I feel somewhat like justintime on the issue. I have absolutely no need for a slider. Just out of curiousity, what does everyone else need it for?

    If i'm listening to music, i'm not going to take the time to 'slide' through the song. I don't need to know where I am in the song (there is a well-working reverse count in CF)

    I mean, honestly, I don't understand WHY you would need it?

    Wow great! it solves the problem of further skin integration...

    But i think that the holding buttons are not safety when driving.

    for example the fast forward/rewind button needed to be holded...I found very difficult to use these features when driving because you need to keep the finger on it but we shake a lot in car when driving so the finger slide out of the button ...Etc...

    For example, with some music (long versions ones like Vinyl version) you need to pass a long intro untill the middle of the song.

    Another example, you could have some long session files like one album/mix in one MP3 and need to forward a lot.


    And like told FrmDrkSide:

    DAVID, perhaps you should make a survey (??) for an OPTIONAL progress slider

    Seems more use on a video/film than it is in music.

    I don't like holding ff down because it sounds like it skips which is lame. Just add it in as a option for people to have it or not. Its such a easy thing to add code wise that its simply crazy it isn't in. I don't even care if you don't add it to your feature skin but just add it in rc2 as implemented and I will make my own slider and button.

    From a skin I made in Road Runner I had this one.

    I make it thin visable but the area to click from is larger.

    I often listen to long mixes and audio-books which have 5-30-60minute length files, for this sliders are great.

    Your surely right for RR but I don't think it could be OK with CF without changing the skin because of the button bar below and the list of songs above.
