I'm new to the Banshee mailing list and community, but the reason I
signed up is because I intend to write a community extension to
provide exactly these kind of keyboard shortcuts. What would scratch
my own itch would be to have Ctrl+left/right to move 1 minute
back/forward, and Alt+left/right to move 10 seconds, like in VLC.
I'll be writing this (rather simple I hope) extension over the coming
weeks, but please bare in mind that the code-base and development
environment is quite new to be (I'm a web developer, used to dynamic
scripting languages). Once I am done I expect to push my extension to
the banshee-community-extensions repo, or submit a patch for review
via the relevant channels (I will find out how to do so in due
I hope my forthcoming contribution can be of use to you!
