Emby for Windows Store - 1.1.409 Has Been Released, Featuring New Timeline Seeking and Thumbnails Graphics!

Visual Timeline Seeking including Thumbnail Graphics
Included in our new 1.1.409 release is support for visual seeking. You can Rewind, Fast Forward or Jump to any position in the timeline
quickly and easily. Best of all our thumbnails graphics help you pin-point the scene you want to re-watch or queue up.

The above pictures shows how easy it is to find a scene you want to watch. You even get the chapter name embedded in the thumbnail picture.

Speaking of which, Chapters make use of our thumbnail graphics as well with  their own set of information and use of graphics.

The above screenshot shows the use of Thumbnail graphics in our Chapter selector available from the easy to use OSD menu. This screen
demonstrates how easy it is to view the Name, Starting Time as well as Thumbnail showing the action taking place at the start of the Chapter.

Improvement to Audio On Screen Display (OSD)
You can now toggle the play queue on and off, allowing you to choose between seeing the list, or just the artwork.
This change makes room for additional space needed for a new user requested feature that is quite popular.

New Use of Graphics Elements

This release of Emby for Windows Store uses additional graphical elements in subtle ways that sure to please.  It still has the classy interface you've
come to love but uses additional graphics in a modest manner giving it an elegant and refined look.

The screenshots above demonstrates this with a couple simple changes from a text based titles to the graphical logos.  Pretty sweet!
Of course that's not all.

Release 2.1.4. has additional new features including:

  • Fixed intermittent app crashes on device rotation during video playback
  • Addition of a Resume Rewind Playback Option  (Server version 4.7+ required)
  • Additional Info in the OSD including Chapter, On Now and a Guide for Live TV
  • Newly added Support for A-Z Picker with Descending Order
  • New Support for A-Z Picker when Sorting by Album or Album Artist
  • New Subtitle Background Color and Opacity Options to make Subtitles Easier to View
  • Improved Audio Book Detail Screen
  • Updates to the Top Tab Design to be More Discoverable and Easier to Use
  • Improved Performance of Playlist Detail Screen
  • Various Subtitle Improvements

Here's a couple more screenshots showing different overlays on the OSD.

Is this release 1.1.409 or 2.1.4 ?

Also, where do you get it from - in my Windows Store I only see Ember for Emby and Emby Theater

So I'll end up with two Theaters, this one and 3.0.15 ?

I download and run it. I skip the password thing and type in Host 192...etc exactly the same as showing in the browser on the same PC. It doesn't work. Try http://192... It doesn't work.

I go back to the previous page and type in my Emby username and password. That seems to work. It presents 4 identical servers, which I stopped using two years ago. I click add new server, I get the same as before, type in host 192... as before. It doesn't work, as before.

Doesn't work = Connection Failure.

A copy and paste error between client release notes as 2.1.4 is MacOS release.

For UWP Theater you need loopback access. 

Either follow H2P's instructions here:

or DL Loopback Exemption utility.

Do I need to fiddle about with colour ranges as well, seems washed out, seems not worth the effort.

Seems to have got better by itself, which seems weird and unlikely, but here's hoping, touch wood...

Would need examples but Store app will not have the same results as Desktop.  As they have different players.

Was comparing this app with browser. Couldn't get Theater desktop to play anything - press Play does nothing (it works now I've closed and re-opened it, typical).

Actually, it seems to start all washed out and when I click on the Windows button to open the screenshot app, it changes to 'normal' colours.

But if I have the screenshot app ready -

I use that Stardock Start 11 thing to add the old windows start menu back, wonder if its something to do with that. Interesting...

You still need Chapter/Interval images for media.  What is your per Library "Video Preview Thumbnails" settings?
