Resume doesn't work - playback starts at the beginning.

Pause/Play button on the Xbox One Remote is ineffective - you have to use the OSD version.

It would be nice to have full Xbox media remote functionality as well.  The FF and RW do not work at all.  Also, I noticed that when I press the right arrow on the gamepad to skip 15 seconds, it flashes to the splash screen for a few seconds and then resumes.  I would really love to see better remote performance for this.

 

I see the splash screen as well and confirm that i must use a right or left directional press on remote when time/play bar isnt present to skip back or forward or bring up the time/play bar and use the buttons on the bar.

 

Cortana/Xbox voice commands dont work for play,pause, etc as it thinks there is nothing playing, I'm assuming cause its a custom player, but that isnt a deal breaker for me.

Bravo, BTW. Its great to see active development like this.

I'm only seeing the flash while it's transcoding. Direct play is fine. As for the remote, if you're using a harmony, can you just map those buttons accordingly?

Cbers on your resume, can you confirm what I put in a few posts ago... I am seeing the no resume on TV based content only, along with scenes not working. Works fine on the movies side both resuming and scenes. Confirmed the play pause button has to be done on the time/play bar like cbers stated.

 

Not perfect remote functionality yet but you can get around and do the things we need without turning a controller on thats for sure.

BAS - what do you mean by "no resume"?

You mean there's no resume icon on the details page, or you don't get the option to resume when you press play?

I don't see a resume icon, but get the option to resume when I press play (like in Kodi), it just doesn't work for TV, but does for Movies.

I concur that there are no chapters/scenes for TV or Movies.

Haha, no resume meant it wasnt resuming the video on tv stuff but does on movies. The scenes etc is a preference in the app, you have to turn them on to see them and test it. With them on and visible, the scenes function doesnt work on tv content for me starts at beginning, but scenes do work on movies.

Why aren't they ON by default!

OK, I concur with what you're saying.

So you are getting things to direct play?

 

Everything I try is transcoding to 10Mbps.  And the Xbone is hardwired.

Ooooo I'm up to 14.4Mbps now.  Xbone ET is set to 60Mbps, tried Auto too.

Chapters/scenes don't work for me on Movies either.

If you let it play (from the beginning) the audio us echoing and it's impossible to stop playback.

Can you do a quick test without qsv? i want to see if it exceeds 14.0. Thanks.

With it turned off the display shows anywhere from 4-7Mbps and it keeps changing.

 

This is the command line:

Thanks, I was just curious. When a client asks for a certain amount, it's usually not a good thing when the server exceeds that. Looks like it's limited to qsv, although i'll have to see if it needs some other param.

  • Tried a movie that always froze at a certain point a few minutes into it and it played without issue.
  • What I've tried so far seems to be direct playing.
  • Faster and more responsive than the Edge client.

 

Impressed.  B)

I'm glad to hear that. If you're wondering why the app is capped at 14mbps, it's because the issues we saw with the web version made me a little hesitant to allow high bitrates. It's not an issue of network performance but more about what the video player is capable of handling. The more I see positive reports such as this the more I will continue to increase it, and if it gets to a certain point then I'll just remove it.

Content with PCM sound is transcoding video and audio.  Equivalent movies with DTS-HD and TrueHD both direct stream with some form of audio conversion, possibly by the xbox itself, as my receiver gets DTS.

 

Xbox remote support is a must though the dpad, select, and back buttons work now.

 

I scrolled quickly through the letter selection in my movies list and once it scrolled past the available images it never did fender them.  I'm looking at a screen almost devoid of posters and it's had at least ten minutes to catch up.
