I have a player.

Yep, but now perhaps you learned it :-)

Yep, maybe a "do you really want to cancel"-screen is best? Then I will have
to press stop-play to make a cancel, while you can press stop-stop to return
to change the setting (and then an extra play to save it).

Extra press for everyone (bad) but harder to make wrong (good) and
cancel-possiblity still left (good).
