Emby for Samsung 1.2.6 has been released. We hope you enjoy the many new features of this build!

Visual Timeline Seeking including Thumbnail Graphics
Included in our new 1.2.6 release for Samsung 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.

Speaking of which, Chapters make use of our thumbnail graphics as well, with their own set of information and use of graphics.image.thumb.png.e6f08e38b406b11a6b952344a561bcff.png

The above screenshot shows the use of Thumbnail graphics in our Chapter selector available from the easy to use OSD menu, and that's 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 Samsung 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 such as changing the title that was text to graphical. 

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.

  • Better remote control and fixes for certain models

If the app is available in the online store in your geo location you could use that.  If not available in the store then the USB install method is what you need to use.

2 different apps pretty much in sync delivered with same feature set.

If you look at iOS an Android Mobile it's the same way and mostly the same feature set additions as well.

So Yes and it's a good thing to have feature parity across the different apps, not to mention making blog posts easier. LOL

Hi, I updated the Samsung App via USB.

Everything is fine, excepct that when i am on a movie detail page - the page starts with a padding from the top of 50% - so the there is a lot of space between Title and the top border. Why is this like this?

I was going to say it should be like that as it displays more of your no doubt excellent backdrops (and it would be the same as Android apps), but looking at the examples at the top of the page I might just possibly be wrong...

The android app has the ability to show detail preview (additional banner) on the start page. Will this feature be enabled also for Samsung Tv apps?

Thanks. If you would allow this in each app, than you would not need a special spotlight, which is a request here:

Than allow the logo to be instead of title (text) - as you have it already and play the theme song / theme video on the right banner after (1-2seconds delay) - this would be awesome. Just combine all your features which you have to all apps and emby will be super mega jesus crazy :)
