When I pause a video on the default player by pressing space bar, it jumps to a different section of the video (usually, at an earlier point, sometimes back to the start of the video). It's pretty annoying can I do something about it other than downloading a different player?

Unable to reproduce the issue here. More details are probably needed to be able to diagnose the problem (the machine you're running on, logs, etc.). –  Chris Mar 10 '14 at 6:36
I agree it's hard to reproduce. It's pretty i8nconsisntent. Some times it works as intended, some times it does that thing I posted about. I'm running 13.10 on a Lenovo G450 but I don't think it's related to hardware though. –  Propeller Mar 10 '14 at 11:58
