Playlist to control order and TIMING of individual slides

I would really like to control individual slides display time.  The M3U8 playllist does seem to have a time component in the
#EXTINF:123, Sample artist – Sample title

Where 123 is the play time in seconds.  Could you use this to control how long this slide is displayed?

The playlist time is not used.  The way to do it is by embedding the time in the filename.  Its described on page 49 of the Users Manual:

The Image Display Time can be overridden by embedding the dot separated timeout=nnn string in a file name where nnn is the number of seconds for which the image should be displayed.

e.g. the image file “afternoontea-details.timeout=120.png” will be displayed for 120 seconds
