branperryqc posted a topic in Feature RequestsHi! I'm requesting the feature to be able to use the video timeline in the player for the Emby app on Samsung SmartTV, we are not able to to forward or backward a video so can you put the feature on? I know there is a new version of Emby for Samsung SmartTV (Ver. 1.0.84) since 3 days but the feature is not in. Thanks! Greetings, Brandon
I have no idea if its possible or not but it'd be a great feature to have something like what Netflix where as you skip through an episode or movie there is like a live preview of what it'd skip to. I'll attach a picture to show what I'm on about.
Edit: As suggested by @ebr I have split my original request to allow better monitoring of interest and progress. I have added the link to each topic next to each Feature Request. If you are interested please discuss in each topic instead of this one. Cheers Hi everyone, I know some of the comments here have already been put forward somewhere else in the forum, but I wanted to 1) centralise them and 2) give my vision on how the Photo Library could be improved. I have raised the point on Github as well, but I thought that it would be better the open a discussion here, so everyone could contribute. https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby/issues/3436 Just a bit of background before I start; I take a lot of photos with different cameras 1 small digital camera, 1 DSLR, 2 to 3 Smartphones (don’t ask :S ) especially when I travel and sometimes I even collect photos from friends that travel with me. All of this to say that I have a sh**tload of naming conventions for the files and I can’t just put them in a folder and expect these to be organised. This is where Emby takes place as I use it to organise and watch my photos. Everything is stored by Year\Month\Event\ (an event could be one single day or e few weeks trip if I am lucky). Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to display these in an organised manner: when I open the folder then I can’t have all the files sorted by date or anything else regardless of the filename… Hopefully there is a “simple” tool that has been helping photo enthusiasts which bring me to my first point: Make EMBY read and display the EXIF information from the files https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63047-photo-library-make-emby-read-and-display-the-exif-information-from-the-photos/ This is the step one, I don’t know if this is already being used but it would be nice to be able to display the EXIF info on top of the photo being displayed. A bit like for the movies where we could display the data such as transcoding info, video size, framerate, etc. in a transparent box. This could contain Camera Make and model, Date photo taken, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, but also coordinates when available (which is often the case when using a smartphone), etc. Sort by EXIF https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63048-photo-library-sort-photos-by-exif-information/ The next step would be to add the EXIF elements in the sorting options. This would allow us to sort our pictures by date taken (regardless of file name, camera, etc.) or by camera, aperture, etc. Timeline This would also make possible to create a timeline view that would display all the photos regardless of folders by only taking into consideration the date it was taken. This has become the norm for many photo app. In my comment in github I was referring to the standard W10 photo app, but this is also true for any smartphone app, and even Plex has done this now This has been already been suggested before: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/54947-pictures-library-filter-date-taken-timeline/ https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/55561-feature-request-for-browsing-photos/ https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/55688-timelineview-for-pictures-and-homevideo/ Map https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63049-photo-library-photo-map/ I always wanted to have this feature! This is something that was offered by Flickr. It would use the coordinates where the picture was taken stored in the EXIF and display the picture in the world map. I think that this was a bit specific in the past because we needed to have a GPS module tied to the camera but now every smartphone does this out of the box (without even asking your permission). Here is an example from Flickr where each point is a picture that you can display when clicking on the point: Better video integration https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63050-photo-library-better-video-integration/ I have noted that when I open a video from my picture folder, Emby doesn’t understand that it is part of the photo album and open it as a single file in the video player instead of the slide show. I think this should be seamlessly integrated into the Photo slide show. Face/Place/Scene recognition https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/63051-photo-library-faceplacescene-recognition/ Let’s push it further, why not including a face recognition that would allow us to sort our collection by people or by scene (city, sea, mountain, etc.) or by place based on GPS coordinates this could automatically name the place and allow us to search or sort based on this item. Anyway, that’s what have in mind for the Photo library module. I understand that there is so much to do elsewhere but I have always considered the Photo library as a core function of Emby. Right now, it is not really usable, I think the read & display EXIF info and sort by EXIF would be a minimum, the timeline is a nice to have and the map+Face recognition is beyond that. I hope this will get some interest and that it will be considered for the future upgrades. Do not hesitate to like the post to make it more visible in the forum What do you think?
monkeyslapper posted a topic in General/WindowsI just noticed this recently. Hoping that someone can point me in the right direction... On the webclient I am noticing that the scrubbar line is showing a percentage instead of the time when i drag the time locator. Anyway to change this back or have a feature to show either percentage or time?? Thanks.
