Hello!

 

I was curious, is there a way to generate video preview thumbnails? With youtube, netflix, etc whenever you are seeking through a video, it'll show preview images so you can gauge where you want to start watching. Thanks! :)

Hi, some apps already support this. Getting it into all apps is something we'd like to do in the future.

What device is your client on jmac? I remux my MKVs purposely so I have scrubbing thumbnails on my ATV4.

Thank you both for the replies!

So client apps support this and not the server itself?

I'm running emby-server on linux right now. All my clients are android phones/tvs.

Surely android clients would support scrubbing thumbnails if I can manage it on a ATV4.  You may have to remux to MP4, but still......

Specifically, the Roku (with appropriate plug-in) and Apple TV support this now.

I see the roku plug-in. Does the apple tv support using that plugin or do they create them on-the-fly?

The Apple TV supports it natively - but only with mp4 videos.
