Playto "Edge" shows spinning dot in center


Recommended Posts

Playto "Edge" shows spinning dot in center that keeps going around and around and around... its like watching a little bug crawling on my monitor.

Using Windows 10 Home w/Edge browser and playing to it from FireFox. I do this so that I can keep it full screen on my second monitor while not messing with my browsing in FireFox. Sadly I no longer have WMC w/external MPC and Emby Theater is so unstable it is not an option.

 

Any idea on how NOT to see this dot (pixel) going around in circles or another alternative?

 

I do see in the server config, that this file is transcoding. Is that why there is a spinning dot?

known issue for now. maybe someone in the custom css section can give you a hack to permanently hide the spinner.

 

you could also try theater again. i think the video player is more stable now.

I tried it last night and it crashed on me with a UI Error and totally and completely hung windows 10. I had to force the PC to power down.
