I have Rockbox running on my Gigabeat F (40gig). I am VEY impressed so far!
Rockbox is the reason I bought it. I realize that adding FF/RW to a video
player is not easy, but how about adding search points. I would suggest
adding 10 or 20 (or even configurable) points that you would cycle through
like chapter points. They would have to be at the next i frame after it.
So if you had a 2hr movie, each break would be 6min. Or have 5 breaks for
under 5 min videos, 10 for under 30 min and 20 for over 30min.

**I would also benefit from such a feature for cycling through large files
like audio books. Sometimes the bookmarking feature doesn't do the job for
me as it gets confused on some of my really bad conversions. Of course I
need the voice UI for such a feature to be effective.
 Perhaps Ed, you could put in an official feature request as you seem to
know more about the programming side of it?

Cheers...rocker
