I use xmbc for my school lectures. So while its going I may have a bunch of stuff going on on my laptop which can be a pain to go back to that tab. Maybe I should use a different app for playback. Remote works but it doesn't have the skips I like to use. It just does fast forward. I should look into the mce customizing app again on xbmc but it always seemed to cause problems for me and break some of the buttons.
