About two weeks ago Emby Theater for Windows stopped being able to skip around in the movie.

 

Any attempt to use the skip buttons or to drag the movie to a different location causes the movie to start back from the beginning.

 

Another oddity is that if I had dragged the ribbon to the middle of the movie for example, the movie would then re-start with the progress ribbon still in the middle where I dragged it but when the ribbon reached the 'end' of what it determined the movie was the movie stops playback at that time instead of playing through to the end.Attached File  EmbyLogs.txt   443.16KB   1 downloads

@Vegemeister, I apologize for the issue, although I am not able to reproduce it. What kind of video file? Can you please supply a copy of the media info as seen from the bottom of the web app detail screen? thanks !

I have the same problem. It's a .mkv file, if that helps.  Also, using cursor to move ahead, also causes it to restart.

 

Theater version 2.5.28

latest server

Will this is odd.  I tried two different movies, both identically ripped from a bluray disk.  "the legend of Tarzan" and "Avatar"..

 

Tarzan works just fine, Avatar has the problem where fast forward always reverts back to the beginning. 

 

I included a fresh log, where the two movies where selected.

 

Not sure what else you may need.

Update, it's later in the day.. Now all movies don't fast forward..  Yep, this makes a lot of sense.

 

Attached server log for the whole day, from the beginning when it worked till now.

I believe it has something to do with the media scan, I was having this the other day when my server updated and was scanning my media, after the scan all returned to normal.

Did a fresh media scan... Did NOT solve the fast forward issue

Hi Luke, I had this last night. It happened when I switched subs (srt) on and the server switched to transcoding.
 

Edit: I should add I only tried one movie as I was trying to see if it already had subs in the video stream so switched them on to read a certain bit of dialogue. Skipped forward a few times and it kept jumping to beginning.

This came up a while back. It was an error with LAV. Try deleting the LAV folder and let it re-download. If that doesn't work, try deleting the contents of the folder, download and unzip LAV in that folder.

I believe the standard emby theater doesn't need any extra codec(s), hence there is no LAV installation that I can see.

 

Could I get a clarification on this ?

Correct yes, it has an embedded version of LAV filters. There are still some rare cases though where it can be affected by system configuration, but that's not typical.

You can look at this thread, to know more about where the LAV filters are.

That's the MadVR location, but the LAV folder is in that comobjects directory.

If it is the LAV filters and they are embedded, then what is the procedure to update them ?  Would downloading the standalone LAV filters "override" the embedded ?
