Visual seeking now available in Android/Fire TV

ebr

6552 views

A new version of our Fire TV and Android TV app will be rolling out soon and it now allows you to take advantage of the new thumbnail generation available in Emby Server 4.1+. If you enable this new feature in the server, you will then be able to visually seek your content with thumbnails in the Android/Fire TV app.

Note: This feature requires that the new server thumbnail generation feature be enabled at an interval less than just chapter points and that it has completed successfully for the item being played. You can find this setting within the Advanced settings for each library.

 

Once you have thumbs for an item, either navigating to the timeline with the main OSD showing or holding down the right or left directional keys during playback will engage this visual seek mode. Once in this mode, you can move along the timeline with the right/left arrows and select a specific spot to resume playback.

 

Also in This Release

  • Improve Wake On Lan
  • Ensure theme songs stop when playback starts
  • Repeat mode in video player
  • Simplify latest recordings view
  • Add ability to modify subtitle and audio defaults in the app settings
  • Add subtitle display (color/size) adjustments
  • Add option to transcode SSA/ASS subtitles (for format preservation)
  • Various other minor fixes and enhancements

Cool!

 

One question: in this new version, can we save the password for all users as we can do on Android for mobile and not, as it happens now, only for one user?

 

Regards

Thanks ebr - Looking forward to this as the majority of my end user devices are Fire-TV - I've had a look and there are no updates to 1.7.21 - I assume it make take a few hours to get to the Amazon App stores (UK) ?

How much space will this take for a, lets say, 2h movie?

for a 30 second interval, mine are between 2 and 2.5 Mbyte per movie, option to store with the media or local emby system disk.

This means for a 2h movie it would be around 600MB? Thats a lot. How much thumbnails are created for 30 seconds of a movie?

Please read again - I said on a 30 second interval it's between 2 and 2.5 Mbyte per movie - not per thumbnail ..  For a 15 second interval double it as you have twice as many thumbnails..

Does this use the .bif files that are generated by the Roku Thumbnails plugin on Emby Server?

The Roku thumbnails plugin is no more, this replaced it. The bif creation is now native to emby. I hope it comes to Xbox soon :)

I'm also waiting excited for it to be pushed, as my server is generating thumbnails at this moment. Didn't receive an update yet (in Germany) either. Were you lucky in the meantime?

ebr - I'm getting great feedback from my users on this enhancement since getting the update last week - it's nice for them to actually tell me how well something works for a change - lol. 

 

So thanks again for the constant enhancements - it's appreciated. :)
