Android Playback Buffer

Doesn't the android client keeps some kind of buffer?


If I replay the song, it still takes a while, cause it wants to start streaming from the server again; is it not already buffered?


Also, if I skip back to beginning, shouldn't it just start playing. It seems it's contacting the server again to get data, something it already played. The track is like 3 minutes long.


It doesn't buffer anything at all?

Hi, we use the native android media player, so it decides the buffering characteristics. If you would like to download the media locally onto the device, you could check out the sync feature.

Currently, Emby is starting a new transcoding session on the server for every seek operation you are performing in the client and does not allow seeking via http range requests.

 

The media playback implementation in Chromium (I would suppose the Android player is based on this as well), is very strict: If the server does not support range-requests, it doesn't use any local buffering at all when the user tries to seek.
