Adjust time for skip forward and backward in Emby Theater?

Can one change the 30 second skip forward/10 second backward times Emby Theater skips forward or backward when those buttons (or alternately the left/right buttons) are pressed on the remote? (or corresponding keys on keyboard?)


Background: Using Win7 MCE, I was able to change those buttons time to 15 seconds forwards and 7 seconds backward (my preferred amounts for watching football, which is one of the few shows I still watch in the Living Room). 


I'm now thinking of finally transitioning to Emby Theater & Emby Server LiveTV due to the Windows 7 EoL and no more MCE Guide after next week.


I've been testing ET on my MCE box to see what might work after years of a stable system (Thanks Luke & team!). Looking at going to a Linux htpc install with ET vs Win 10 with either ET or the MCE port. 


I did look through the github source code for Emby Theater to see if I could spot an easy fix, but I think the number of seconds might be server determined? It appeared that it just got a new URL with a new seek time passed to it. (If so, perhaps this is more appropriate as a server feature request?)

You can use the Playback settings to adjust the skip back/forward in 5 second increments. The option is available in all clients, but I believe once you set it in one place it's the same on all clients.

Thank you! Those increments will do.


I'm guessing it is user specific rather than client specific since I had to click on the user icon (just to to the left of the gear icon) to find the playback menu option in the browser, which is where I do most of my admin stuff.


Since the screenshots would be different for the web client than Emby Theater, I'm mentioning that tip for the next person with this question.
