Emby for LG 1.0.35 has been released. We hope you enjoy the many new features of this build!

Visual Timeline Seeking including Thumbnail Graphics
Included in our new 1.0.35 release for LG is support for visual seeking. You can Rewind, Fast Forward or Jump to any position in the timeline
quickly and easily using our new seeking. Best of all, our new seeking combined with thumbnail graphics makes it easy to 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, no bull. :) 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 LG 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. 

Additional useful information is now available right in the OSD besides the chapter shown above. You can now quickly get a look at different things on TV with graphics using On Now or easily bring up a traditional Guide in grid format. These new OSD designs strike a nice balance of providing additional information while still allowing you to easily enjoy the content be watched.

Thanks for the comments.

Make sure these issues are posted in the proper forum so the devs are aware!

The exact same changelog as the Samsung release?

А можно в следующих обновлениях сделать интеграцию с kinopoisk.ru это российский аналог imdb.com. А то последние месяца 2 метаданные берутся только с imdb, или это связано с этими санкциями?

Yes and if you look at the releases before these you'll see they are are very similar.

 The fact that all these apps are being released about the same time with the same feature set is a very good thing.

And you can integrate with kinopoisk.ru in the next updates, this is the Russian analogue of imdb.com. And then the last 2 months metadata is taken only from imdb, or is it connected with these sanctions?

If it Russian focused it probably won't be added to the core. We try and use meta-providers who support multiple language to support the largest group as possible. It could certainly be added as provider in the catalog but we generally would prefer it be developed by a native speaker of the language if possible. This is the way some of the Chinese focused meta-provider are done.

If you program in C# and would want to take this on, or know someone who could do it that would be great.  We have forums for devs and it's a great place to get answers to development questions as well as code help.  I'm sure we even have source available for a meta-provider that could be used as a framework.

Ha. это крупнейший мета провайдер в станах бывшего советского союза (USSR СССР) kazahstan, ukraine,  tadjikistan, uzbekistan etc. все русскоговорящие были бы рады добавлению кинопоиска вот сюда. Т.е чтоб это работало как с imdb, вставил id и так далее

Thanks for the follow up. What I said is typically of the process but certainly not a rule, as we try to add meta-data providers to the core that benefit multiple languages and thus the largest population of users. If a source can be added that benefits a large population of users regardless of language it's something that definitely carry weight for consideration.
Probably even more so if current source results are underwhelming. As you point out the Russian language isn't limited to a specific country but is used in many other countries as well.

My suggestion would be open a new feature request  in our Feature Request section of the site: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/forum/98-feature-requests/
Search first to see if it's already been requested and if so cast your vote and comment in that request thread.

Many new additions to the software come from user requested features. Some community members have also developed plugins for Emby based on ideas in the request threads as well so it's a good idea to check and post their for multiple reasons!

The main hurdle I see is that something like this is going to be a harder to develop and test if you don't understand the language so that limits the number of community devs who may be interested in creating a plugin/meta-data provider especially if they don't personally benefit from it. But with the use of translation services to check results and assist language translations it's still quite possible to do.

If you are interested send me a PM to take the conversation offline. It would be great to get some some specific feedback, examples and baseline results of how the current providers do vs results if this were added. 

Thanks,
Carlo

The new skip forward/back feature is a step backwards imo. Using my TV remote to skip forward/back used to be instant, but now there is a delay.

Also, it now displays onscreen info each time you skip. This is not good when watching sports like MMA and boxing where you don't know the result... e.g. If I skip forward between rounds 1 & 2 and see there is only 5 minutes left of the video I know straight away that there's going to be a stoppage in the next couple of minutes.

Please consider reverting to the skip function from previous versions, or at least give us the option to permanently switch off the onscreen info pop-up that appears when skipping forward/back. Hopefully this will also fix the skip delay too.

Hi, is this just the LG client or do you see the same thing on any other client?

On Roku it's never been the most responsive, but all previous LG versions have responded instantly when using the remote to skip. 

FYI... using the onscreen skip button on LG still responds instantly, it's just when using the remote that you get a delay. 

It's not a huge delay, but enough to make things sluggish when trying to skip multiple times in quick succession.

I don't have the LG myself but can't help wonder if you have both jump and RW/FF on your remote and you're using a different way now?

I'm using this button on my remote, always have, but now it responds differently. Before the update the video would jump forward by 10 seconds instantly with no onscreen display popping up on the screen, but now it lags and you get the time, video name, remaining time etc etc appearing on the screen.
