When a file recorded by PlayOn with 'ad-skip' is played back with PlayOn, advertisements are skipped as desired. However, when the same file is played back through the PlayOn plugin in Emby, advertisements are not skipped. If the PlayOn plugin for Emby is just a front-end for PlayOn, why would the same player playing the same file not skip the advertisements? The frame numbers for the beginning and end of each commercial are listed in the header of each PlayOn recorded file (see attachment). This is different than commercial endpoints being listed in a separate .edl file as produced by Comskip, so software designed for Comskip does not work. For persons using PlayOn to exclude ads, this shortcoming is a significant matter. snazy2000 said that this is an Emby issue, not a PlayOn plugin issue, so a new thread needed to be started.
A number of folks have pointed out that the seekbar on the IOS app is difficult to use to skip commercials, and it would be better to add a 30 second skip button to the IOS app. I think Plex, Tablo might already have this? And Aereo had it back in the day?
