Transparency skin and movie information delay in slide mode

Can someone please tell me if it is possible to change the time from a movie cover is selected until the movie information
pops up? as of now, it seems time constant is about 2,5 secs, but I would like to trim it down a bit.

Also, if the plot inside the movie information box is too long to fit, it does not start rolling after some time, like I have seen
on other distros. I assume this is a setting as well.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I suspect sdcard read speed would have the most effect on this. Samsung evo cards seen to be the current best recommended cards.

I don’t think its due to read speed. The background image for the movie appears instantly (I’m using RPi3 by the way), its only
the information text box which appears 2,5 secs later.
