What has come out of this proof of concept thought @chef is some great groundwork for a 'spotlight' channel ... ;)

Are all the sessions within a half to one second of each other - yes

That's the part I think would require more testing because I doubt you can maintain that with multiple remote sessions with differing playback methods.  My guess is it would be very likely to be several seconds out of sync.

Given the latency I've seen in ComSkipper and PottyMouth I would agree.

So as a proof of concept - are we concluding that it will not work and we are abandoning the project as a plugin ?

If yes, I agree with the outcome and this was the whole point of doing it as a proof of concept.

 I'd much rather close this thread (and edit the first post) rather than leave people hanging that this is going to deliver something.

I would say yes.  But I'll defer to @chef.

I would leave this open as a feature request.

Netflix had intro skip, then Amazon, then Plex, and finally a while later... Emby has it.

So, Amazon has watch party, Plex has had watch together for a couple years.

I figure... eventually emby will have this ability. Just not yet. 

😁

Sure - I didn't mean close the Feature Request - I meant close this Plugin Thread ;)

Also to note The Emby Introskip Plugin is still functionally better than both the Amazon and Plex 'Introskip' (as it also does end credits, editing etc) - and is still functionally superior to the Emby Core Introskip feature as well - which is probably on-par with the Plex implementation.

Unless we can innovate, be the first, or do something better than the competition - then my personal view is releasing something that is not only 2nd (3rd/4th in this case..) and inferior to the competition is not where anybody wants to be.

Don’t sell yourself short fella… it was actually rewlly good and the concept proved but need core interaction to realistically make it a usable option

@chef tried his best, but there was quite alot of core dev work to get this working properly. So no 3rd Party Dev Plugin will be available.

Core team - it's over to you :D
